The London based artist, Darren John is best known for using vibrant imagery that is universally recognisable and impossible to ignore. His work takes the imagination itself as subject matter with a view to revive and celebrate the infinite joys of an unchained imagination. He uses the bright colours and forms of childhood creativity to produce windows for playful exploration.
