DAVID VINCENTE – OUTLAW ART
In 1968, the south of France bore witness to the birth of David Vincente, an artist whose work speaks to the outlaw in all of us.
David developed a passion for rock’n’roll and an abiding artistic interest in the pop culture of America, and its interpretation by artists such as Meyer, Roth and Rob Williams.
In a recent interview with Artsproject, David spoke about his beginnings:
“I beginning to draw very young and I have a special interest for the American comics, like Marvel, especially GHOSTRIDER. Later, as a teenager, I beginning to listen to rock’n’roll music and especially Psychobilly. This inspired me to draw and paint T-shirt and leather jacket for friends, but again was just for the fun. I started to make professional work after I left the art school I was attending in Paris from 1989 to 1991 (ESAM or Ecole Supérieure des Arts Modernes et du Design). After graduating, I then worked as a freelance illustrator, but it was very difficult in the beginning with few clients but with a strong motivation and passion for what I do after 20 years I’m still here and happy working as an artist and illustrator.”
And what an amazing artist David is. Painting, drawing, sculpture, he’s the real deal.
