When We Think Retro, We Think Vincent Trinidad Art
Vincent was one of the first content creators we had on the marketplace. His art is mainly inspired by 80s nostalgia and they're extremely detailed. More than being an artist he has also been selling his shirts in international marketplaces such as Threadless, Redbubble, and Amazon. He's not just an expert designer, he's a full-blown design machine that knows how to monetize his skills.
We asked him a few questions to get to know who he is and find out the design process that goes into the genius brand that is Vincent Trinidad Art.

I am into Retro leaning towards the 80’s era where I grew up and also Japanese Culture as a kid watching Sentai, Tokusatsu and the early Anime like Dragonball and Ninja Scroll also Ghibli movies! It comes natural to make Nostalgic Pop Culture designs because as a child that is how my childhood is spent…. Watching T.V. and Playing Video Games. I do not like sports, I tried and has never been good at any of it. hahaha

Feels Great! Especially when I see them in real life in malls etc. But I also like it when followers tag me on Instagram.
