Darrell D. Mayabb, the award winning fine artist, illustrator and automotive designer hails from Arvada, Colorado. Originally from Dayton Ohio, his artistic pursuits have taken him to southern California, south Florida and finally to the outskirts of Denver where he’s worked for the past 35 years or so.
Although Darrell says that his artistic interests cover the breadth of art history, he counts Von Dutch ( who was himself influenced by Dali) as being instrumental in getting his creative and hot rod juices flowing. From Dutch’s early inspiration, Darrell began a monthly pilgrimage to his favorite magazine stand, gleaning over all the exciting art and photos contained within the pages of those little rod and custom books. As Darrell puts it, “ I began to connect to this wondrous new adventure – the modified automobile. To this day, the HOT ROD and my enthusiasm for the lifestyle fills a major portion of my real and creative life”.
