Vincent’s work is proud unashamed expression of our world although his influences include such names as Roy Lichtenstein, Tom Wesselmann and Mel Ramos. Vincent would never consider himself to fit within any genre rather his art as an expression of himself.
Growing up in a popular suburb in paris. Vincent decided from a young age to leave his artistic mark on the world.
At the age of 13 Vincent started to sketch the Graffiti he was seeing in the streets and railways as a form of mimicry and as a way of developing his craft. It was not until he was 15 that he started to put these talents into practice and create his own street art on the walls that surrounded him.
At 17 Vincent started to take on much larger projects, painting entire trains on the Metro. His roots in creating street art have been integral to Dacquins art as it is today. The bold letters and sayings that often feature in Vincent’s work owing much of their stylistic elements to this development.
Vincent Dacquin left education after what in the uk would be the A-level grade. satisfied that he could take better control of his work and clearly displaying the technical skill required of an artist to make that move.
Vincent Dacquins love for art was instilled in him from a young age. His father “Gilles Dacquin” being a photographer something which has no doubt heavily influenced Vincent’s work.
Having a love for photography himself, he has captured elements and the feel of a photograph. In his perfectly lit photorealistic paintings of women created with a mix of Airbrush, oil, acrylic, resin, glycero, pastels, charcoal and graphite all these ingredients combine to create truly deep and visceral works centred on female beauty.
Vincent is one of the 3 artists which work for Faith Connexion to produce artistic designs on clothing. For which he painstakingly hand paints each and every product. His artistically created clothing has been worn by Kanye west, Jay-Z, Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, The Game, Kim Kardashian, Swizz Beatz, Future and Lewis Hamilton. Dacquin began working for Faith Connexion in 2015 and is working on a new collection for them in 2017.
Dacquins works take on an unexpected angle. The focus often being on how money plays an extreme roll in our modern society and a satirical take on today’s zeitgeist. The work challenges our perceptions and has a deeply striking tone that can’t help but delve deep into your psyche and questions unashamedly our ideas of what our society is today and how focused we are on self gratification.
Vincent Dacquin believes this quote from the Hip Hop artist “Oxmo Puccino” ,best sums up what his motives are.
“This world is not my own, even if I’m doing well.” – Oxmo Puccino
