It was fun to stumble upon this story on Artsy today about University of North Carolina-Charlotte graduate, Darren Goins. A North Carolina native, Goins currently lives in Los Angeles, where he continues to use simple computer programs such as Microsoft Paint (a technique he began at UNCC) combined with a CNC machine, to create his latest works on clear acrylic panels.
Congrats to Darren for the feature! We love hearing Charlotte success stories.
By the way, if you want to see one of Darren’s older work in the Charlotte area, UNCC has a large work on view in the hallway of the Rowe Art Building.
