José Vicente was born in a traditional Valencian barrack in 1962, in the hamlet, Horno de Alcedo, in Valencia, and currently resides in the beautiful town of Sedaví, in Valencia.
His works are called Art Povera, the waste once worked and passed through the factory of the imagination of José Vicente, become true jewels full of originality, striking and full of color, uniting in each work, art, decoration and modernity.
It makes a mixed technique in his works, combining recycled materials, such as soda cans, leather, nails or aluminum, with pictorial elements such as oil or acrylic paint. The cans are worked, glued and nailed with 9 mm nails. to the wooden support. The pieces, once cut, are glued and nailed to the wooden support, where the work has already been drawn with a pencil, and piece by piece the work is composed.
Once all the pieces of the work have been glued and nailed, they are sealed with acrylic paint, to give a background to the figure made, finally I color the rest of the image to highlight the figure made with cans, also with acrylic paint. The work is very laborious, there are many hours of work in each work, hundreds of pieces of aluminum and more than 3000 nails, in a big work.
The final finish is with a glossy finish varnish for acrylic paint and oils. My works of art are different and of a NOT usual technique, they stand out in any exhibition for their color, very striking and decorative. In addition to being works with recycled material, soda cans reused to create ART.
