Natale was the Grand Prize winner of International Artist magazine’s Challenge No. 110, Abstract/Experimental Art.
Historically, Vince Natale has painted contemporary representational works with narrative or allegorical imagery that also has an emotional charge or mystery. Natale previously worked as an illustrator where the messaging had to be very clear in the work he created. Over time, in his personal artwork, those messages have become more subtle as he experiments with techniques and style.
Natale elaborates, “I’m not constrained by that requirement and I can be as obvious or as obscure as I like. But I don’t want to be so cryptic as to be dismissed as nonsense. I also paint a lot of landscapes now, which I never really got to do outside of little background vignettes in my illustrations. Painting landscapes has allowed me to experiment with subtle changes in my technique and helped me to loosen up in a big way, for me.”
