Darius Frank aka defcise...

Born and raised in the Washington DC, Metropolitan Area

My focus is on the humanity of the thing, the person, that the subject could be, as opposed to what they were. I look to speak to something innate in all of us, to identify and relate to people we may not know or understand. I do this, while considering my own self and my place in the world. I am black and carry no illusions to the mistreatment and under representation of Black Americans in almost every space.  I do not hide that my work lends to the idea that we exist on the spectrum of human emotion and expression as intrinsically as any person of any race or creed.
