Vincent is a self-taught artist born in Maldon, Essex, he was educated at Thurstable School, Tiptree where his paintings were first exhibited as a young teenager.
He was fortunate enough to meet HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, when they were visiting Vincent’s local public house in Essex where some of his paintings were being exhibited, he had a very long in-depth conversation with HRH Prince Charles about his art and living in Cornwall, a very special moment.
More recently his work has been displayed in prestigious galleries in London, Suffolk, and South West England.
Vincent developed a passion for painting seascapes after living in Newquay, Cornwall in his early twenties. The main medium for his work is oil. He has recently moved back to Cornwall where he has a purpose built studio/gallery adjacent to his home which overlooks the river Camel and the Camel Trail. The studio/gallery is open to visitors, contact details can be found on the website, www.vincentbasham.co.uk
Several of the paintings are available as Limited Edition Prints of ‘195’ worldwide.
Two exhibitions are planned for 2018, at the Padstow Institute, Duke Street, Padstow, Cornwall, PL28 8AB. The dates are 11, 12, 13, 14 June and 30, 31 July,
