“I try to let my artwork speak for itself, but I love crazy patterns, ink culture and paintings that are older than the houses they hang in! If I’m not designing tattoo flash, I’m making my own comic book designs in my spare time… or at least what is left of it!”

Mum-of-two Monica Vincent began exhibiting nationally in 2017 following success as a local artist on the south coast. Her artistic licence has its own recognisable flavour which is based around mixing the iconic with the surreal.

Vincent also considers herself the country’s greatest barista!

Monica Vincent is a self-taught 3D and digital artist who takes great inspiration from her hometown, and the UK’s southern art capital, Brighton. Monica uses whatever free time she can spare sketching, photographing or manipulating her works using three-dimensional digital mapping and layering techniques.

Far more modest as an artist, her creations are finished digitally, but begin life on her much-thumbed sketchbook and within her extensive back catalogue of her own photography. Drawing passion and muse from a wide range of artistry, she feels equally at home adoring the works of the great masters as she does savouring the work of the greatest traditional tattooists of our time. Nearly all holidays she takes are to visit international tattoo conventions and art shows across the UK and Europe.

“Although digital layering is nothing new in the art industry, I like to think that my take on such themes that I’m currently experimenting with will at least encourage a smile rather than to impress a serious critic.”
