Vincent Bernier Vincent studied painting at university where his interest in the human body as the subject of art had already become a focus in his student work. Later Vincent worked with recycled materials to create images that took a deceptively decorative form. Vincent has developed a style that he refers to as ‘constructed painting’ for which he assembles a collage of fragmented objects, frequently gaining inspiration from the works of old master’s. This collage foundation is then worked upon using various media to create the finished piece. The composite forms he creates on reclaimed boards from thrown elements have a sense of the monumental, whatever their size. A sensuality of form and texture can be found in every piece, justifying his sold out exhibitions throughout the years. His work explores the ‘pop constructivist’ style he has cultivated through works built up using layers of recycled images, paint and other mediums. The principal subject he examines in much of his work is the human form and sexuality. This subject has gained much acclaim from people that have had opportunity to view work throughout Vincent’s various noted exhibitions. His merciless vision has contributed much to the controversy his art has always aroused. Aswell as original artwork Vincent is also an accomplished mural artist and can comfortably create provoking designs on any scale. Examples of previous murals can be found in his portfolio. His most recent work has been a large mural commisioned by a high school in the north west of England. Vincent has undertaken many workshops with local schools demonstrating his style and talents to children from 11-17 years old. He is currently working on a project with Bolton council creating art works for the city hall with school children from the local area. Vincent is now living and working in the UK. Commisions are accepted. All themes considered. A range of cards and prints are available from any of the original works that are viewed.
