BioVidal comes from a sheep ranching family of welsh origin. The surroundings of the childhood region, the rough, coarse nature he grew up with, were the main reason he wanted, to the disbelief and disappointment of his father, to study painting.
He finally did and got right away embraced, as 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.
He never thought of taking over the family farm, his younger brother finally did. He studied and now lives most of the year in Madrid but occasionally goes to mountains.
