Vincent Reid

Vincent Reid was born in 1970 on a farm in Zimbabwe. He admits that he has always been a close observer of the outdoors.
After  completing his schooling in Harare, he studied interior design and worked for 18 years in the exhibition and events industry as a designer / business owner before leaving the profession in 2011 to pursue his passion - full-time artist.

"Pencil is my medium of choice because it is an extremely direct medium which satisfies my desire to express the deep contrasts and textures of my subjects. I aim to capture those moments which represent the essence of the African outdoor experience. I am inspired by the textures of nature and pencil allows me to incrementally and sometimes painstakingly carve those textures out of my paper. Each piece is a representation of my own personal experience and I will always endeavour to experience everything that I draw."
