Vincent Hie’s passion for art began very early in life at the age of 4 and followed him through into adulthood.
Born in Indonesia, but raised in Amsterdam, Vincent Hie initially studied Labour and Organizational Psychology at the University of Amsterdam. After graduating, he worked for two years at a Burnout Clinic as an assessment psychologist, but he never stopped drawing, painting and creating. After several art commissions on the side, his passion for creating was too great not to take a chance making a living as a full time professional digital artist. Though the decision to switch careers was difficult, and he was conflicted at the beginning, the decision proved to be the right choice.
Fast forward fifteen years, Vincent Hie is now a prolific artist known for his high level of detail, hyper-realism, dynamic lighting, and overall articulation. While his work covers anywhere from wildlife to dark art, Fantasy and Sci-Fi remain the genres he’s most passionate about.
His work has been used by companies worldwide on a variety of mediums, including apparel, mobile phone accessories, decals, posters, canvas prints, book covers, and more with several of his pieces becoming best sellers.
Always creating, always observing, always learning, Vincent Hie’s goal for the future is simply to become a better artist than he was the day before.
