In the beginning
Donald E. Perry was born and raised in Zebulon, North Carolina. Donald began group art classes at the age of seven including drawing and oil painting. He attributes those art classes to learning the basic art 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. Donald earned his Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications and would go on to become an award-winning Art and Creative Director while creating his artwork in the background. These experiences and others are what led him into creating his own Advertising Agency before deciding to focus on his art career in 2009.
When life meets truth
The original paintings and drawings Donald hangs and posts online are only part of the narrative. As a creator of original artwork, he works hard to develop art releasing the truth inside a toxic world of lies which transforms reality in order to give his art a voice. The evolution of his art is created by analyzing and observing life, death, positives, negatives, balance and history. 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”. His influences are so vast he said, “life is the only influence you really need”.
The creative lifestyle
Donald published 14 issues of www.3dotmag.com a creative lifestyle print and online magazine between 2012-2015. Donald also published an art book of 300+ drawings created during this same time period. “The Positives Inside Negative Expression” was featured on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. For the past 10 plus years, he has been focused on creating new art and making sure to be true to himself, his art and our history.
