Leon has been a professional artist for the majority of his life. His work has been sold at various galleries across the UK as well as Christies the fine art auction house in London. Many of his works have sold to the USA where he commands thousands for his original pieces. Risborough Gallery have made him a regularly featured artist.
Leon’s philosophy is that it is not the delineation of the subject which is important, but its fragmentation. He believes a strictly photographic image does not allow the viewer to participate in the painting. If the image is fragmented, the viewer can imagine for themselves the missing parts and involve themselves in the creation of the whole image. The viewer has seen their own interpretation of the fragmented images; the next viewer may see something completely different.
