Leon has always had a interest in art from a very young age, at 17 Leon attended art college in the U.K. studying graphic design from this experience his work veered off into illustration. After years of illustrating he decided to turn his hand to working with stencils & spray paints.
His inspirations mainly come from colourful abstract and surreal artists, such as Picasso, Dali, Miro, Pollock, Gaudi and Kadinsky, but also pop artists like Warhol, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein and Jean Michel Basquiat. Other inspirations include Hip Hop culture, Americana and comic book art.
He now works under the name Abstract Graffiti creating unique urban, abstract and pop art style paintings, also tailored commissions to clients worldwide. So far to date Leon has been published, exhibited and sold work worldwide.
