Darren John Pope

Educator and Visual Artist

Darren is an Educator with a background in performance and entertainment journalism. He currently holds the prestige office of President of Beechworth Arts Council and has an enduring commitment to community art and engagement.

On the back burner, Darren has a near completed Doctorate of Philosophy researching the continuing impact of Romanticism on contemporary art. This thesis he fully intends to finish, sometime between now and death.

In senior years, Darren increasingly considers himself as a Visual Artist with a focus on painting the Still Life. His style is consciously mid-twentieth century Modernist with a strong nostalgic bent.

When not being a Visual Artist, Darren is a collector of art books and pre-loved objects, all of which, from time to time, find their way into his paintings.
