Bygone Days III by David Smith
£725.00 inc. vat
Intense figurative realism originating in a subculture rich with narrative tension. Vincent’s arresting portraits are built on the assumption that society will always identify with rebels and the gritty underground world of urban subculture. For his latest work he has travelled around the UK visiting barber shops and events to gather material in a setting which transcends social class and makes everyone feel like ‘one of the boys’. These mesmerising oil paintings evoke emotion, fascination and intrigue about both the backstory and the future of a character. He seeks out moments of tension, and explains: “My paintings are all quite dark, subtle and intense. I’m always imagining there’s something surreptitious going on in a perfectly innocent situation.”
He is heavily influenced by cinematography and its impact on storytelling, believing that by manipulating the composition, light and colour you can completely change the feel of scene.
He has painted many A-list sporting celebrities including David Millar, Francesco Moser, Liz Yelling and Paula Radcliffe.
Has work in the collection of Fran Millar, manager of Team Sky, Francesco Moser and in Francesco Moser’s museum in Trento, Italy.
