about Destry Sparks

Destry S. Sparks is a contemporary mixed media painter using unconventional media such as driftwood, raw burlap and even parched white bones. These found objects create a visceral effect upon the surface of his works, bringing a very tangible element to painting. His influences range from contemporary international painters (Anselm Kiefer and Gregory Amenoff) and modern masters (such as Joan Miro) to untrained outsiders and ancient artists from diverse cultures (African, Aboriginal and native American).  From his studio in the college town of Greenville, NC to galleries around the country, Sparks enjoys bringing his work to new audiences.  By networking internationally with other innovative artists, he organizes outstanding group exhibitions under the Sparks Art Projects banner to expose their work to new markets.
