Originally from Leeds, now London-based, he runs WAR Gallery, a studio/gallery of political and comic art.

Darren is perhaps best known for his Pocket Money Loans installation at Banksy's Dismaland, winning a legal dispute with Shell over his anti-Shell artwork and the Action Man: Battlefield Casualties toys and film.

In 2018 he released the Mini Daily Mail, a hand-drawn satirical scale-model of what he calls "Britain's angriest and horniest newspaper”.
