On Facebook as Darren Wenzel
Growing up back in Australia, the walk home from school took Darren Wenzel right past the local sign shop. He couldn’t pass by without a look in the window to see what the sign painter was working on. That curiosity led to what would become a career in sign painting, pinstriping and custom painting.
“I decided that was what I wanted to do,” he says. “In 1987, I went on to do my signwriting apprenticeship in a big shop in Adelaide that did a lot of display work. This was before computers, so there was all this block lettering to be done with a brush. It bored me then, but I’m so glad I got the opportunity to do that. I wouldn’t be in the position I am now without that.”
