Inside the studio with Leon Keer as he prepares for his exhibition ‘Contradictions’ showing at The Brand Library & Art Center for NEXUS III.
Leon Keer is a world-leading artist in the anamorphic street art. He has executed commissions in Europe, The United States, Mexico, The United Arabic Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Russia, New Zealand, Australia and several Asian countries.
A message seems to be present in his work. Current issues are reviewed, such as environmental concerns and the livability of this world. Leon Keer is constantly aware of the playfulness and beauty versus the degradation around him, a contrast that he expresses and amplifies in his work and which he uses as a metaphor for live.
His paintings reflect his thoughts, confronting the viewer with the diseased spirit of our times, visible decay counter-pointing a timeless longing for unspoiled beauty.
The artist adds: “Every street art piece is unique and belongs to the street and its residents, the temporary fact about this artform strengthens its existence”
