Lluís Lleó is a self-taught, fourth generation painter who grew up immersed in the classical history of painting from ancient times through the 20th century.
In his work, using pure pigment with the fresco technique, he unites a very classical approach to painting with his uniquely contemporary ideas about how art can be experienced.
Lleó's masterful, almost playful, manipulation of form, volume and light offers the viewer a sense of discovery and wonder. Born in Barcelona in 1961, Lleó lives and works in New York. His work is in the permanent collections of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, the Banco de España, Madrid, The Nagoya Museum, Japan, the Sofìa Imber Museum, Caracas, The World Bank, Washington, among others.
