Duplicity of Life
Vincent Artist's most recent body of work includes "Duplicity of Life” in which the Artists explores the opposites, such as yin & yang, war & peace, love & hate, rich & poor, life & death.
This work has been inspired by the programme “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist” which is an American reality competition show in which up-and-coming Artists compete for a Solo Show at the Brooklyn Museum.
In Series 1 Episode 8 “Opposites Attract” the Artists are to make a work of art based on opposites such as heaven & hell, male & female, order & chaos. (available on youtube)

Disasters of Wars
"Disasters of War", which is a homage to Heroes and Villains from World War I & II, by the use of humorous and tongue-in-cheek language to explore the more serious issues of the past to the present day. Heroes and Villains are portrayed in life, death, and immortality by the use of toys of our innocent youth. The toys are used as a satirical look at the “Disasters of Wars” revealing shock and truths of war and violence in a playful way.
