Fraser is a first generation British born artist with Jamaican parents who has worked as a digital illustrator and visual artist for 15 years. “We selected Vince to design our official 2013 artwork because after one look at his aesthetic, we knew he was the one that would bring the flair and creativity that represents the Hollywood Black Film Festival,” said Tanya Kersey, Founder and Executive Director of HBFF.
Fraser has designed for brands such as Coca Cola, Guess Jeans, Toyota, L'Oreal, Bloomingdales, Tiger Beer, Hugo Boss, DELL computers, T-Mobile, and British Airways; He has become highly sought after by many leading fashion and consumer brands.
“I would best describe my style as being both illustrative and decorative with special attention to detail transforming it into something quite eye catching. A lot of my work is heavily influenced by intricate line work and by applying manipulation techniques,”

Fraser also felt that being as a festival that celebrates black cinema, and having partnered with NASA , it would be a great opportunity to combine the two elements of bold colors and graphic shapes to showcase something more futuristic and surreal for HBFF.
Fraser is currently working on a sizeable mural in London as well as a project for Warner Music and feels honored to be collaborating with one of the leading black film festivals in the world and hopes the exposure will trigger some exciting projects on the West Coast.
