American, 20th century, male.

Born 1935, in Brooklyn (New York City).

Painter.

Tom Vincent's paintings are realist, and document certain aspects of American life. In this sense, he is similar to the Hyperrealists. Nevertheless, he uses simplifications, and he does not seem to seek out overelaborate details. Vincent exhibits mainly in New York and Paris....
