Vincent Da Silva is a sculptor based in Somerset West, Cape Town. His work began in plaster, the medium allowed expressive textures and tool marks, which gave the work an abstracted quality and accentuated the movement the artist strives to portray.
Vincent cast his first bronze and proceeded to market his work. He competed in the 2007 PPC Young Sculptors Competition and was an exhibited finalist. After matriculating he was accepted to study Architecture at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth and during his studies in 2009, opened up his Gallery in Stellenbosch.
