My name is Dillon Proby. I am a young rising artist out of Phoenix, AZ. My work is really inspired by the black community. My goal is to unite people of color and of all races through visual images. I like to touch on topics that have shaped our black community. As well as events that are going on today.
My name is Rodney Burns. I am an artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I live north of Atlanta, GA and work in the banking and finance industry. One day, I would like to be able to spend most of my time doing what I love. Art has always been a passion of mine. From writing poetry, drawing, painting to wood working, I have always had an eye and ear for detail. I haven't had any special training other than your standard art class in elementary school. Some people are born with special talents and mine just so happens to be art. I love an abstract piece that makes no sense at all, but, makes perfect sense. I, personally, don't feel that every piece of art should have a story behind it. Many of my pieces have no story. I start with a color and do what comes to mind. Sometimes, art is just art.
Darwin Leon was born in 1972 in Santiago de las Vegas a small town in Havana, Cuba. In 1987, Leon's family sought refuge from the political and economical crisis in Cuba, and departed to Spain, then later continued to the United States to settle in Miami. Leon earned his Bachelors in Fine Arts from Miami International University of Art & Design, where he attended as a recipient of the 'Visual Arts Scholarship Award of Excellence' and received Best in Show at his first Juried Student Exhibition. His first direction was expressed through religious portraits. However, he found a greater enthusiasm for figurative and expressionistic forms in which he incorporated satire and irony through surrealism and cubism. Leon's work is energetic, fresh, alive and abundant with color.
