David Vicente’s illustrations are inspired from a time when rock was rollin and pink Cadillac’s were
how you got around, this representation of American culture from the 50’s and 60’s on acid is about
to cause an 18 car punk pile up. What does David have coursing through his veins? The answer is
found in B movies, pinball machines, comics and Betty Boop, you also have sex and violence flipped
up and turned upside down, a scornful and flashy style that laughs in the face of death.
To sum up, He has rock and asphalt under his skin.
David Vicente is an illustrator with an insatiable gas for his Tarantino illustrations, he takes us for a
ride in a death proof car, pedal to the metal, with guitar riffs blasting on the radio, a gun in the glove
box, travelling through decades, from the 50’s into the 80’s, from rockabilly to psychobilly.
The spectator gets an eyeful of beautiful and strong women,
grimy men that gamble, life is one big ride.
This Rock and Roll Whirlwind has now found itself on a range of Dickies garments
for the SS18 collection!
