Vincent Donlin is largely self-taught, but was lucky enough to meet and be taught by the late visionary artist Donald Pass at Upbury Manor secondary school he later attended Medway college of Design and completed a foundation course.
From 1996 till 2008 Vincent painted pictures of religious subject matter. Since then he has painted numerous paintings of Brighton which are usually taken from photographs and painted portraits in various media including work on an iPad.
Most of all however he prefers “The putrefying fecundity of oil paint“ which brings us to his current exhibition.
These are painted on canvas or wood using an acrylic underpainting and building up the picture using linseed oil glazes and finished in oil paint.
