Soon after graduating from Art College, Vivian set up and ran a successful luxury interiors business supplying beautifully hand-painted screens and trompe l’oeil wall paintings to the elite of society from LA to Tokyo and everywhere in between.
Since those early years, he has gone on to be commissioned to create bespoke works of art for many A-list celebrities and international royalty. Indeed throughout the 90s, he travelled at least twice a year to Dubai, Jeddah or Riyadh having assembled and trained a team of highly-skilled artists to carry out large installations throughout the royal residences of the Middle East.
Now working from his London studio, Vivian creates engaging work using strong colour to convey the intense emotions that nature arouses in him and so entertaining the viewer with his incredible ability to “play” with light and space.
Drawing on his wealth of experience in technique and compositional development, the resultant surface is one that seems to connect with the viewer in an almost magical manner that somehow soothes and exhilarates at the same time.
