Statement

Born in St. Louis, Vincent began his love affair with art at a very early age. When he was first able to hold a pencil he knew he loved drawing. Throughout his early years and onto high school his love of art captured his soul. His passion and resolve to educate himself in visual arts led him to Columbus College of Art and Design. There he graduated with a BFA in Fine art & Illustration. In 1990 he moved out of the Midwest and into the Los Angeles area. He gained recognition in the commercial art world by working at companies in the Fashion, Marketing & Advertising industries.

Feeling the need to express himself as well as having a visual story to tell, Vincent decided to follow his first love and branch out into the fine art world. In his first show he was highlighted in a group show titled “For Love or Money”. This show was the crossroads between his commercial & fine art career and the first environment to feature his “Entomechanical” series that intertwines nature and machines inspired by photo realism, digital collage and technology. Since then he also has ventured into the Steam-Punk movement. Vincent was invited to show several of his “Professor Flux Repurposed Ray-Guns” at numerous galleries and museums in the southern California area.

In 2012 his art work “Victorian Insect Box 3“ was voted 1st place in the digital category juried art show at the Orange County fair. Also in 2012 his piece “All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace (Adam)” received best of show at the Art for All People Gallery show entitled “Phoenix Rising”. Then in 2013 his work received a “Stellar” award by Digital Arts: California “Simply the Best 2” online exhibit.

His richly detailed works transports you to an alternate reality where science, nature and spirituality evolve. Vincent has shown in museums and galleries throughout southern California and his works grace the homes of various collectors.
