About Me


I'M Don O'Bannon

My goal is to portray in strong visual images the experience of African American life and highlights the significant achievements and contributions of African Americans in the diaspora. My paintings portray images of life, social, political and personal that highlight my own world view but contain universal themes that bind us together.  People and images fascinate me, and I strive to portray the personality traits that make human beings so uniquely engaging. I am inspired by life and beauty. I paint and draw intuitively letting the power and spirit of the image slowly emerge from a blank canvas. My art work has been shown at the African American Museum in Dallas as well as galleries and shows throughout the United States.   My art work has been presented at juried shows such as the Red River Revel, Texas and Neighbors Art Show and the Harlem Fine Arts Shows. In describing my artistic journey I would say that I have always loved art and the challenge of painting a three-dimensional image on a two- dimensional surface. Art reflects our unique life experiences. It captures a moment in time that reflects not only who we are now but our rich cultural history.  I feel like I have come full circle from those early years when my highest aspiration was to be an artist.   I am married to Marva O’Bannon and have six children. Please take this opportunity to view my art work. Please contact me at Check us out on Facebook and Instagram. Thanks for your support. 

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


I am inspired by a wide variety of classical and contemporary artists, like Pablo Picasso, John Biggers and Jacob Lawrence.


Using bold colors and strong images, my art work seeks to combine realism, detailed images and imagination to capture the essence of a subject or scene. 

Career Highlights

I grew up in Dallas, Texas,  graduated from Dartmouth College, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree and received my law degree from the University of Virginia. I have been practicing law in Dallas for over 30 years. (
