Kevin Vincent is a practicing artist and has pursued art with passion since childhood. He explored Graffiti art briefly during Secondary school and went on to complete a degree in Fine Art at the University of the West Indies. Kevin’s keen interest in abstract art was birthed during his undergraduate experience and eventually became his lens of artistic exploration and communication.
For Kevin, abstract art allows him to enjoy the process of combining an array of elements such as: colour, shape, texture (for example) in an attempt to capture fleeting moments resulting in something visually interesting. Kevin primarily works with acrylic medium and at times, watercolour paints.
Title: “Faith which worketh by love”
Kevin accredits any talent that he has as a gift from God and uses it to interact with the viewing audience and believes that everyone can receive something from abstract art.
He has had the opportunity to share his artistic expressions through the CITI Bank: 200th Anniversary Collaborative Mural with the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine among other collaborative exhibitions and projects. Solo exhibitions were held more recently at the Princess Elizabeth Special School and Art 6 Gallery in 2017. Kevin also works on private commissions while building his new body of work.

INFORMATION ON THE SERIES
Series: Conch Soliloquies
In this series my concerns were centred around the intimacy of space and spirituality. At this stage of my artist career, finding time as well as the appropriate space to create poses to be a very difficult task. These paintings were birthed as symbols of optimism and escape when I had no place of rest in the physical.
The decisions made in colour are the key that opens the window of a familiar yet unseen new environment. Each colour helps to transcend the borders of a white canvas into intimate pockets where brushstrokes are free to move and become alive.
Each piece tends to carry a concaved part which not only places emphasis on the importance of interior rather than exterior but seeks to provoke thoughts and propose questions to the viewer about their intimacy with sovereignty and their own spiritual walk with God.
