The Possibility Club podcast is a peek under the bonnet of business, culture and education, chatting with the change-makers and rebels.
Richard Freeman’s special guest this week is Vincent Kamp.
Vincent is a figurative painter, comic book writer and sculptor.
The website Creative Boom describes him as ‘one of Britain’s most evocative and exciting new artists’ whose paintings are rooted in a ‘world of urban subculture’ that ‘delves beneath the surface of social class’.
As much influenced by cinematography as the master painters, Vincent’s canvasses depict lifelike characters from the underworld of crime and sport – as if Rembrandt was documenting the Kray twins – getting under the skin of gangsters, boxers, poker players in the shadows of East London and elsewhere.
Vincent is self-taught, yet is setting the art world alight, winning the TAF Artist of the Year Award in 2017 and with high profile exhibitions represented by London’s Clarendon Fine Art Gallery.
Vincent has painted a number of household names in sport and music, from Paula Radcliffe and Sir Chris Hoy to Sam Smith and pianist Ruben James and has many works in the collection of Italian cycling legend Francesco Moser.
We spoke in mid-April 2018 about creativity and productivity, audiences and criticism – and Vincent’s own mission to tell visual stories in new ways.
