This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist:

Born in 1955 in Zaragoza, Spain, Vicente Pascual Rodrigo began to study art in the Escuela de Artes of Zaragoza and the Escuela de Bellas Artes of Barcelona in 1969. He held his first solo-show in 1971 at the Galeria Atenas, also in Zaragoza, and he has been exclusively devoted to art since then.

From 1970 to 1988, he worked with Angel Pascual Rodrigo in the two-man collective La Hermandad Pictorica. During the period 1970 to 1974, they worked on installations and paintings in a style close to Pop but with a social agenda.

In 1974 and 1975, Vicente Pascual traveled to Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. Living quietly with a Brahman family in Pushkar, Rajhastan, he studied the diverse arts and philosophies of India, which left an indelible mark in the way Pascual looks at the life. After his return to Spain in 1975, he married and moved to a small village in the Pyrenees.

During this period, he became acquainted with the writings of Frithjof Schuon, Ananda Coomaraswamy, and Seyyed Hussein Nasr. Aware of the accomplishments of contemporary art, Pascual championed a movement that advocated a return to an intellectual landscape filled with symbolism. The artists he studied during this period were the German Romantics, the Japanese artists of the Ukiyo-e, and more recent painters such as Monrandi and Rothko.

From 1980 to 1992, Pascual's studio was in Campanet, Mallorca. During these years, he traveled regularly to Bloomington, Indiana. In 1992, he moved his studio to the United States where his art underwent a severe external change; he reduced forms to a basic geometry close to the essentialist conception of Agnes Martin's grids. As Chris Gilbert summarized, "for Pascual, the shapes, the circles, squares and other reduced glyphs in his paintings are forms akin to the inter subjective schemas of understanding that Plato, Kant, and Cassirer saw as preconditioning appearances."

Pascual's work has been the subject of a large number of major exhibitions and critical essays, and is regularly exhibited at the international contemporary art fairs. In 2002, his painting "Triptych," was acquired by the Inter-America Development Bank for Contemporary Art Collection in Washington DC.
