Daryl Rainbow graduated with a BA in Illustration from Camberwell College of the Arts. He lives and works in Hackney, London.
Born in the Philippines but raised in London, Daryl likes to create images based on his observations through living and growing up in London since the 1990’s. "In an age that is defined by the influence of the smart phone, the resurgence of Nike TN’s, the rise of the avocado and pop-up brioche bun/pulled pork stalls; I am equally irritated and delighted by the fickleness of modern London living. Themes of gentrification, technology and youth culture heavily fascinate my work"
Rainbow is currently working on‘Still Life Featuring’ -an ongoing series of still life/digital illustrations that reference lyrics from landmark albums and moments from our most-loved TV shows.
'Existential Grafitti' is another continuing series of work by Daryl Rainbow. This is a digitally illustrated series. It depicts urbanised scenes and facades having been blessed with angst ridden, existential graffiti and addresses the "urban artists" unlikely insecurities.
