Darren Lynde Mann
Emerging Outsider Artist Darren Lynde Mann was born in London 18 years ago, and grew up in the small village of Monewden in Suffolk. Estranged from his adoptive parents at an early age, by the time Darren went to College at 16 he was living independently.
He is inspired by, and borrows from, the Renaissance painters Michelangelo, Tiepolo, Bernini, Botticelli, & Caravaggio. He cites modern influence from Bacon and Freud.
Darren’s emotional life is wrapped up in his practice, he finds it cathartic and sees it as a way forward to express himself and grow:
“I want to be able to paint such emotions I feel and that people could relate to, I want to create impact and power with my work”.
