Darren Coffield studied at Goldsmiths College, Camberwell School of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art. With Joshua Compston he founded Factual Nonsense, a gallery space closely associated with the emergence of the Young British Artists (YBA) movement. His work has been seen in numerous exhibitions in Europe and was included in the BP Portrait Award in 2003.
Coffield describes the Welsh painter, journalist and novelist, Molly Parkin, as his muse. As fashion editor of Nova magazine in the 1960s, she became a trend-setting celebrity in the 1970s. After touring her solo stage show in the 1980s, she has now returned to painting.
