Gabe Leonard

Gabe Leonard's paintings draw us into a world rich with cinematic atmosphere and narrative intrigue. Attracted to the rugged and romantic elements of film noir, he merges technically brilliant figurative painting with a finely crafted ambience, creating a freeze frame full of narrative possibilities. He captures the richness of the mood by combining the free brushwork of an expressive artist with the lighting and framing of a seasoned Hollywood director.

After graduating from Columbus College, Ohio with a BA in Fine Art he moved to Los Angeles where he began to hone his skills on the ultra-competitive boardwalk of Venice Beach. His style is deeply rooted in European artistic tradition, and he is particularly inspired and influenced by Rembrandt, Mucha, Klimt and Schiele. Yet despite his respect for these establishment figures, he is strongly opposed to academic restrictions and the trademark runs and drips in his work are a deliberate statement to this effect.

“Taking plenty of time to study the view, the person or the composition that I am about to paint, I can decide the areas that require toning down and the areas that need to be made more vivid, if any, in order to emphasise the character."
