About The Artist

Darius Frank aka defcise...

Born and raised in the Washington DC, Metropolitan Area

My focus is on the humanity of it all. All that the subject could be, in opposition to what they are. I look to speak to something in all of us. To identify and relate to people we may not know or understand. I do this, while understanding and examining my own self and my place in the world. I am black and carry no illusions to the mistreatment and under representation of African Americans in almost every space. While never forgetting that we also exist outside of our struggles and the case should be made for future generations.  My work feeds off the fact that human response and idealism are based off the spectrum of human emotion and it's many forms of expression.

Art lives intrinsically in human emotion and my work can not truly be received without an eye or response mired in emotion.
