Biography and credo

Studied architecture and fine arts in the USA and Poland.
He practices painting, drawing and photography. Recent projects come from the fascination of multi sensual perception. Paintings are elements of performances based on the idea of synesthetic metaphors – abstractly combined sensual experiences create individual feelings for each participant.

He puts it, by abstract expressionism. Free, unrestrained expression, art not subjected to any particular compositional rigor reflects the freedom of mountain planes. Vidal creates colorful patches, lines and patterns, lets the drama dominate his work by using color as a strong element. He describes his paintings as: Sensual Ethereal Metaphysical Amorphous Fleeting Personal Variables.

During the fifteen years of his artistic search Vidal’s  works evolved in a continuous process from expressive representations strongly dependent on primitive art to new aesthetics of creating images. His is a sense of depth achieved through a variety of textures yielding an almost sculptural form. At the moment, he concentrates on alternating and mixes traditional and modern techniques by combining action images with a bold calligraphic style. His graphics are highly physical, joyful and interpretive. Large format goes hand in hand with easels and oil paints. In his art, he definitely stays away from smooth and flowing,  staccato and rhythmic. His acrylic paintings are made of many interacting layers resulting in a surprising artifact.
