Donald Perry was born in Zebulon, North Carolina in 1969. The son of a textile / interior designer, he always had a strong interest in art and design. Donald began group art classes at the age of seven including drawing and oil painting, which he attributes to learning the basic skills of a fine artist. Donald continued to focus on the fundamentals of fine art throughout his formative years. Upon the completion of high school, he went on to study fine art, graphic design, photography, illustration and creative writing, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications from Mount Olive University. After completing his degree, Donald focused all of his attention to art and design. The paintings and drawings Donald hangs and posts online are only part of the narrative. As an artist, he works hard to develop art releasing the truth inside a negative world. The positives inside negative expression is his main focus while always transforming reality in order to give his story a voice. Donald developed his techniques specifically to capture and emphasize the flowing creativity inside a non-traditional approach to composition. The evolution of his work is created by analyzing and observing life, death, positives, negatives and balance. He makes every attempt to speak to himself and others about the truth inside every piece of art he creates. As you will see, it’s not a beautiful still life or landscape, “it’s his truth” and what has turned into a portal of reflections of life. His influences are so vast he said, “life is the only influence you really need”. Donald currently lives and works in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina after moving from Wilmington, North Carolina in 1999. Donald is currently working on many different projects, but his main focus is always producing art and design which tells a story.
