The work as a painter by Fernando Vicente is characterized by the constant presence of the human figure combined with other elements that the author has been collecting throughout his life. Thus, of the four main series that group their pictorial work, Anatomies is painted on maps, Atlas on mechanical workshop sheets, and Vánitas and Venus use anatomical sheets (these last two being references, respectively, to the fashion photographs of the 50s and the great themes of classical painting). The technique used is the same for the illustration as for the painting, the acrylic, changing only the support, the paper in the first case and the canvas in the second. Likewise, Fernando Vicente, always works on his feet, facing a large easel, even in the case of illustration. The use of the computer is limited, when necessary, only for the final finish: fonts, application of background colours or collages.
