John Vincent is an artist based in Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire.

The subject matter of Vincent’s work is informed by notions of a contemporary suburban Gothic with elements of horror that touches on science fiction and time travel with a distinctly British feel. These ideas have led to the exploration and representation of eerie atmospheric interpretations of everyday life and subsequent transformations of the seemingly mundane through paint, video, digital art and installation.

Missing or hidden elements within the scenes often convey a sense of mystery by alluding to events that have already occurred (or are about to). This can involve the concealment of the identities of characters within the frame, by the interaction of characters with the inanimate objects that surround them or by the total absence of characters with only the objects or architecture that remain.

Experimentation with digital media has lead to further exploration of the artist's interest in technology and the interplay of analogue and digital media often manifesting in surreal and dreamlike imagery and sound.
