About the Artist:
Leonardo live and works in Lompoc, California. For many years he
has volunteered his time with the California Youth Authority at the
Los Prietos Boys Camp.
Leonardo also speaks and conducts workshops on a variety of
topics, from printmaking and the art of the mural, to color theory
and specific mediums, such as acrylics.
From the etching of small copper plates used to produce a series
of prints depicting the California missions, to murals eighty feet
wide, such as the Randolph Mansion mural located in Lompoc,
Leonardo moves easily between mediums. He has also produced an
extensive series of the homeless he has met at the Midnight Mission
in Los Angeles.
Leonardo’s Homeless Series covers a wide range of mediums
including, oils, acrylics, linoleum cuts, and copper plate
What is most remarkable about this artist is his ability to
maintain a high degree of craftsmanship, no matter what medium or
form he is working in. The fusion of art and craft is something not
easily found these days.
