At my core I am really just an artist or someone who is meant to create, whatever that may be. I have always been creating and always exploring how to produce things that aren't already in existence. I don't think I'll ever stop doing that and I'm not sure if I ever can.
My name is Darrin Jamal and I created Social Living to embrace the idea of focusing on finding the inspirational, educational and empowering aspects of everyday life while looking for new ways to present them. I try to understand and portray mindsets that many of us may have but can’t express or visualize. By taking every opportunity to absorb various subjects that spark emotion and action, and bring them to the forefront of my work, I attempt to highlight the importance of the separate worlds that empower or limit each of us. I start with a basic idea inspired by my surroundings. I’m very moved by social interactions and etiquette, architecture, film, skateboarding, music, nature, and exploring cultures. The final product is built through a combination of illustrations, collage, mixed media, and digital design that grabs viewers’ attention through boldness and minimalism.
