Paintings, Drawings and 3D Mixed Media.
In the 80's I studied and strived to perfect painting. By the early 90's I discovered that to evolve I had to create more three- dimensionally. I could no longer be limited to a single medium. This in turn unlocked the world of mixed-media and broke the shackles of tradition, leaving only creative discipline.
Resume / Bio
After completing 3 years of military service DeBerry's applied and was accepted to the prestigious Hollywood Art Center in Los Angeles. It was during this period that he became serious about the commercial side of the art world. While never loosing touch with his first love, painting, the next four years expanded his horizons by studying design, color, commercial production, sculpture and theory with some of the best artists in the world. He was awarded a BFA in 1981. This training in the classical forms of composition and color later became the basis for DeBerry's abstract figure studies.
DeBerry's trademark style combines the classic art forms with the use of cubism and hints of the surreal. By developing figure studies engaged in contemporary activities, and allowing them to perform on a stage of old master disciplines, constructed to challenge the spectacular while highlighting the obvious, DeBerry prolongs the visual experience with thought-provoking and highly entertaining compositions.
DeBerry has managed his own successful graphic design company, Fine Art and Graphics, for the last 10 years while continuing to travel and study art. He currently maintains a working artist studio in Nashville TN. and is Co-Founder and CEO of Center Stage Magazine.
