ABOUT THE ARTIST
Leon’s medium of choice has been wide and varied, over the years, including acrylics, watercolors, epoxy, and oils. After experimenting with countless mediums, he has found his niche in oil and acrylic. Through oil, Leon can experiment with textures, using flat expanses in some areas of the canvas, while creating heady texture in others. He loves to create a nuanced interpretation to his vision by leveraging contrasting textures and colors. Acrylics provide Leon a fast-dry, flexible medium with which he can form easily manipulated, yet complex, layers of color that enhance the effect of his pieces. Leon is constantly evolving as an artist, finding inspiration in both nature and the urban areas that called to him as a child. Most recently, he has been experimenting with a new style of painting, creating art without tools and using only sound vibrations to generate a new series entitled, “Pulse.” Leon sees his work as a product of his life, journey, and experiences. He has been painting professionally for 30 years; his work has been exhibited in art shows and galleries throughout the U.S.
