Over the past twenty years Vincent Killowry’s reputation in fine art and design has steadily grown. He was winner of the An Post 2005 Stamp of the Year Competition with his Tall Ships which celebrated the commencement of the Tall Ships Race from Waterford in July 2005. These stunning stamps, designed by Vincent, received the largest number of votes from collectors.
As an artist who specialises in painting the great machines of land, sea and air he has always been intrigued by mankind’s ability to harness the power of Mother Nature to travel great distances.
Although Vincent’s acrylics and oils are painted with a technical accuracy reflecting his interest in the engineering aspect of his subject, he considers the lighting, atmosphere, mood and setting of the composition to share equal importance within the painting.
