Delvecchio Faison is a local-based artist living in Durham, North Carolina. He was inspired at the age of five to draw when he saw his stepfather sketch his mother. Faison would carry this inspiration to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, concentrating in Design.
After graduation Faison pursued graphic design and work in the printing field. He slowly found the desire and passion to draw, eventually leading him to paint using the acrylic medium. His confidence in getting his work displayed increased after working with the well-known Raleigh, NC artist Eric McRay’s in his studio at Artspace.
Faison is currently teaching Visual Art at Lakewood Montessori Middle School and is an adjunct instructor at Durham Technical Community College in Durham, North Carolina.
