About
Vincent is exhibiting throughout 2024 with Picasso, Chagall, Hockney, Hodgkin, Dix, Chuck Close, Warhol, Klimt, Sarah Lucas, Lichtenstein, Richard Hamilton, Dürer, Man Ray, Cindy Sherman and others in a curated exhibition selected from the collection of influential art-collector Ömer Koç, at Arter, Istanbul.

Vincents' work explores the concepts behind figurative art, predominantly portraiture, referencing influences from contemporary and the entire history of western painting, often utilising modern technology beside traditional techniques. His work is preoccupied with the representation of the human form within painting, using family. friends and mostly himself as his subject.

His paintings have won many awards and been exhibited in some of the most prestigious exhibitions in the world. His self-portrait with family was recently shortlisted for The Ruch Borchard Self-Portrait Prize.
A portrait of his parents was selected as winner of the Holburne Portrait Prize by Rachel Cambell Johnson (Times art critic), Sir Peter Blake (Artist) and Bel Mooney (Author), resulting in a portrait commission of Triple Academy Award winning directors of Aardman Animations from his home town of Bristol, UK.
