Peter Vigil uses bold colors to abstractly depict everyday or provocative, social and cultural themes that promote divergent perspectives and that transcend collective principles. He uses the resounding vibrancy of the hues, especially the red hues, to provide a sense of a physical existence to his subjects and underscore the complexity of intrapersonal, interpersonal, as well as emotional experiences. In a large body of his work, Vigil also embellishes paintings with black lines or swatches to accent the conflicting and complex nature associated with the subject matter.
Vigil is a self-taught artist that began painting in 2006. Since then his work has been exhibited at galleries, festivals, and various other venues in South Florida. He was born in Cuba in 1967 and has lived in the Miami, Florida area since 1973 after living in Madrid, Spain for four years.
