Vincent Gray has worked alongside some notable and highly regarded names in the arts, engineering, military and entertainment, both in the UK and in Scandinavia. His work has introduced him to many leading lights and free thinkers, which he says, ‘do not fail to inspire and influence’.
I first met Vincent when visiting his studio, nestled in the South Downs National Park near Chichester. He opened his studio space as part of the Chichester Open Studio Art Trail, and asked if he could borrow my children's hands to cast for a series of sculptures he was collaborating on for British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare. Some of this imagery documents those body casting sessions.
Vincent has been recently down-selected for a Royal commission to produce a sculpture for HRH Her Magesty the Queen.
