Story
Tagline
Detroit based artist (www.colindarke.com) Editor of Detroit's cultural webzine TheDetroiter.com (est. 2002)
Introduction
 
The Detroit News described Colin’s paintings as employing “a bold, colorful style reminiscent of the German Expressionists.”
 
Born in 1977 in Southfield, Michigan. Bachelor of Fine Arts, with an emphasis in watercolor painting, from Western Michigan University in 2001. 
 
He is the editor and a regular contributor to the Detroit cultural blog thedetroiter.com. He is currently one of the inaugural mentors for Detroit Creative Corridor Center’s Creative Ventures and he is a member of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit’s New Wave Board.
 

 He was recently invited to participate in the Actual Size Biennial (Juror: Aaron Timlin), and he has a solo exhibition and recently gave a lecture at Michigan State University College of Law. In 2010, Colin was juried into two highly competitive art competitions: (1) the 2010 Michigan Fine Arts Competition (Juror: Sondra Freckelton) at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center in Birmingham, Michigan, and (2) the 18th Annual National Juried Exhibition (Juror: Rackstraw Downes (2009 MacArthur Fellow)) at the Bowery Gallery in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York, New York.  The Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center also invited Colin to participate in a two person show, and the LaFontsee Gallery selected Mr. Darke and his sister Kelly Darke to showcase their “Sibling Revelry” series of paintings at its gallery for the annual ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
