The art of twin brothers Victor and Vincent Wood is merely a reflection of their lives. Born in Raleigh, N.C., in 1973, Victor arrived six minutes
later than his brother, to everyone’s surprise. Under the influence of their highly individualistic mother, who died in 1989 from cancer, the twins
developed an early enthusiasm for creativity as well as a strong, competitive drive to achieve. From the ages of five, their remarkable gift was
undeniable.
The twins mastered their skills through intensive self-learning and experimentation. They are naturally talented, neither ever having any classes or
formal training. Competition also fueled the urge to strive for perfection in each work. In 1996, the brothers began their professional careers and
their notoriety, as well as their talent, continues to grow each year. Each brother developed his own style and creativity, which has evolved into a
versatile team that covers virtually the entire fine arts field. Their talent is comparatively equal, yet diverse and uniquely individual.
Vincent quickly etched his name in the art field at a young age in 2000 when Topps sports cards commissioned him to do the design for 6 special
insert cards in their premium set. It was a great honor for Vincent, who had grown up collecting cards. Vincent continues to stay involved in
professional sports as he has provided commissioned pieces to athletes, teams, and corporations.

In the 2000 Jimmy V Celebrity charity events, the twins were commissioned to do the official poster and a special piece for the black tie auction.
Helping in the cause to find a cure for the disease that took their mother was a dream come true for the twins. They continue this effort today, and
their artwork is a tribute to her loving memory. Vincent's original painting and prints of the legendary Kay Yow were his latest contributions to the
cause in February of 2009 at the
Hoops for Hope charity event at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, NC.
The twins were raised in Garner, N.C. and are alumni of Garner High School - traits shared by 2011 American Idol Winner, Scotty McCreery. Vincent
recently painted a tribute of the hometown artist "I am Second", in which he gave it to the Country Music phenom.
Victor and Vincent turned the bedroom they shared growing up into a sports dream room by drawing all their favorite players on the
walls. The closet door was also covered with hundreds of players’ faces they drew on paper and cut out. The photos above were
taken when the twins were 10 years old.

hockey sets, came only in every 15 packs, and are traded and sold Wordwide on the market.


AP Story about hometown mural
The N&O did a front page story about Vincent's mural at GMHS, that included Country Music Star Scotty McCreery, who is from his hometown. Both are alums of the reknowned
high school. The story was picked up by the AP, and went Worldwide to thousands of news outlets in every genre of media. As Scotty McCreery had just won American Idol, and
was just beginning his senior year at the school, the interest compounded into an immeasurable amount of exposure and buzz, which continues to this day. The mural of the
iconic teenager is listed on Google Maps, helping all tourists and Scotty fans find the local monument in Garner, NC.
