Born in Madrid, Fernando Vicente begins his career in the ’80′s, mixing illustration with painting. His unique style embodies bold and slightly aggressive visual concepts, giving him the freedom of playing with the composition. Experimentation is his motto, shifting and mixing different environments in just one work.
In his series “Vanitas”, Vicente depicts the transient beauty of a woman’s body, juxtaposing an aristocratic attitude in his Hepburn-like beauties, with the reds and yellows of the flesh, all framed in a nicely textured cyan background. Or in lesser words: underneath, we are all the same.
