Darren Lynde Mann - Renaissance Echoes

The Old Bank Vault in partnership with ArtDog London to present Darren Lynde Mann’s debut art exhibition, Renaissance Echoes.

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. Due to a grey area in the benefits system Darren was forced to leave college without completing his A-Levels.

“Without really thinking too much about what I was painting; I was painting how I was feeling, which I couldn’t really explain to anyone at the time”.

Darren was generously given a studio space on an old American Air Force base in Suffolk where he was able to start experimenting with larger canvases. He now paints on stretched calico, using charcoal and emulsion.

“I’m particularly drawn to religious and Renaissance Artworks. Behind every powerful, emotive painting or sculpture there is a story, a meaning that gives such depth to the artwork”.
