BIOGRAPHY

 

© Leonardo Passeri, Porta Sole, Perugia, Italy. 2015

 

Leonardo Passeri was born in Assisi in 1982. 

Studied at the Central Saint Martin’s School of Arts. inspired by British philosophy, cultural and aesthetic atmosphere, cyber-goth, revival, and extreme avant-garde, Passeri decided to embrace these thoughts completely and transmitted them to his creations.

The approach to inner reality became a real introspection, with questions, researches and considerations driven by the need for expression.

His first works focussed on experimentation of pictorial media and painting techniques.

The intense abstract landscapes, the bright and hypnotic colors to fluid, almost molecular forms in their fusion indicated a primordial world.

The latest pictorial and sculptural projects, still expanding, are focused on scenarios and visions from the future, characterized by post-apocalyptic scenarios, alien creatures, anthropomorphs, androgynous and symbolic forms, all dropped into indefinite terrestrial and spatial dimensions.

He exhibited in Italy, in the UK and abroad.
