Vince Herrera

Vince Herrera [born 1985] is a Florida-born artist of Cuban descent, renown for his vibrant paintings, portraits, and murals. The inspirations behind his work are as numerous as the layers of paint and washes he applies, which echo the decayed stages of urban walls. Whether it is a memory, a current event, social commentary, or simply a smile, Herrera
draws from his experiences and surroundings to thoughtfully select his subject matter. His dynamic and vivid backgrounds provide a balanced platform for his delicately painted foreground images. Through his process of layering, the two are blended to create a harmonious union of structure and spontaneity. His drive can best be described with the Constantin Brancusi quote he has adopted, “Create like a god, command like a king, work like a slave.”
