DME CreARTions

Hey everyone! My name is Daryll Estep. I am a graduate of George Washington Carver Center for the Arts and Technology in Maryland, where I studied Photography and Digital Fine Arts. I enjoy photography, painting, graphic design and modeling. As an artist, my work is inspired by society, school, friends, and even simple conversations.  These experiences are later developed into a visual representation.  At an early age, I was enrolled in an advanced level art class in error,  which I struggled and wanted to give up.  Upon entering high school, I didn’t believe I was good enough to be accepted into the Carver’s Art program, but to my surprise I got accepted and have progressed to love art in many forms.  My photos are based on individual associations which open a unique poetic manner. By applying abstraction, I develop ways that do not follow usual criteria but are based only on personal connections by the viewer. My collection “skin series” isolates the movements of humans and objects that highlight its unique beauty. By doing so, new interpretations are created which reveal an inseparable relationship between body image and self-confidence.
