Vincent Brandi is a native of Long Island’s North Fork. He obtained degrees in Fine Art at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Pratt Institute. After many years of living in Manhattan and elsewhere, Vincent returned to his home inspired by the rural and haunting
beauty of Eastern Long Island. Concerned not so much with the reality of the the landscape, as it’s luminosity, he seeks to depict the play of light on the land and strives to capture the very essence of Eastern Long Island’s vanishing landscapes.
Currently,having been banished by the town elders, Vincent resides with 2 black cats on the outskirts of Sag Harbor, painting landscapes from his home on the water.
