Leon’s contemporary mixed media works often incorporate photography, stamps, stickers, newspaper clippings, rubber glue, CDs and labels.
He believes that it’s important for the artist to create a piece of history by documenting the present.
Instead of using materials from the traditional art supplies shop, he prefers to work with spray paint on glass, book covers or old video cassettes.
