Pencil Art by Vincent Reid
Pencil Art by Vincent Reid
by Vincent Reid
Vincent ReidBorn in 1970 and raised on a farm in Zimbabwe, I have always been a close observer of the outdoors. After completing my schooling in Harare I studied interior design and worked for 18 years in the exhibition and events industry as a designer / business owner before leaving the profession in 2011 to pursue a full-time art career.

Pencil is my medium of choice because it is an extremely direct medium which satisfies my desire to express the deep contrasts and textures of my subjects. I aim to capture those moments which represent the essence of the African outdoor experience. I am inspired by the textures of nature and pencil allows me to incrementally and sometimes painstakingly carve those textures out of my paper. Each piece is a representation of my own personal experience and I will always endeavour to experience everything that I draw.


Finalist: 2014 David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Competition.
