"My name is Darrell Urban Black born in Brooklyn, New York, I grew up in Far Rockaway, New York...As a child, I made spaceship models eventually placing my artistic visions on paper resulting in some 500 drawings. Phantasmal spaceships eventually carried me to unique wonderland of strange forms and colours.
In 1982, I joined the National Guard...In 1988, I joined the army and served another four years. I earned my Bachelor Degree in Science of Criminal Justice Administration at the University of Phoenix. In April 2001, I was nominated by the German government as a "candidate of the year's prize for promising young artists." ...I had many local, national and international group art exhibitions. I have artwork permanently displayed in a number of art galleries, museums and other institutions in America and Germany. My artwork has been displayed in Veteran Art Shows including one at Intel® Corporation in 2014.
I live in Frankfurt, Germany and continue to draw and paint in pursuit of my artistic dreams. I'm a member of the Veteran Artist Program abroad (EuroVAP)."
