Who is VonBruhl?

A Greenville native and graduate of Riverside High School, Darryl DeBruhl, studied Business at University of South Carolina Spartanburg.  He discovered his creative abilities as a child, and was repeatedly reprimanded in gradeschool for 'doodling' during class.  'Doodling' would become one of his greatest artistic outlets and today his Doodles  represent a portion of his work and can be seen in Doodle album.


Recognizing artistic gifts can be inherited, Darryl credits his father, Alonzo DeBruhl also an artist, with encouraging his talents and fostering his creative genius.


Influenced by Jasper Johns, Warhol, Dali and others, Darryl says in his artist statement that he is,


"...Visual not verbal.  I have always expressed my feelings better thru my art than verbally.  I get inspiration everywhere....from cemetaries to the door knob on my grandparents homeplace to racing thoughts in my head at night.  In my art, I try to show others what my world looks like thru my eyes." 


"I dream of painting and then I paint my dream. Vincent Van Gogh" 

Similarly,  "It's in the paper" VonBruhl
He states he  paints/draws "what is in the paper."

So why the, "Von"? Being of German descent, Darryl uses this spelling as his artist name for distinction. Fun Fact: "VonBruhl" means from the town of Bruhl.
