About Derek Murray

 
 
  • Biography

    Visual Art is fundamental to my existence, like breathing.  I have one painting owned by the state and many hanging in homes around the world but selling my work isn’t what I’m about. I frequented the Arts Lab in Drury Lane London. It wasn’t the place that inspired me, but its nature and name.  The thought of exploring Contemporary Art, not sticking to a set formula or making the work an extension of home decoration.  Before I offer my work it needs satisfy me, also it is important to me that the work is original.  The name Arts Lab has resonated with me since 1968, experimenting, testing and developing original Art drives me on. 

    Jackson Pollock never gave up, and neither did Turner despite being made fun of.  Then Vincent van Gogh only sold the "Red Vineyard at Arles" in his lifetime.  So art isn't driven by profit, it’s created through love.
