All About Leon Hart
I was born in St Leonards on Sea, a small little place in Hastings but spent most of my life in and around East London, moving there permanently at the age of 11.
Ever since I was a child painting was a big part of who I was, I found it a great escape and release for my energy and imagination.
As I got into adolescence it became a way of releasing my thoughts that I felt unable to communicate in words and to this day each piece is created through emotions drawn from my current state of mind due to life experiences.
I was heavily influenced by the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Willem de Kooning through my teen years but overtime I developed my own style that portrays my feelings / emotions / thoughts in the way I feel they deserve to be shown. A big part of that is adding texture so the viewer can also feel the work as well as see it.
I am available for commissions, and all existing pieces are for sale.
