Born in Budapest, Hungary, Leon currently lives and works in Leeds. After his degree (1998-2003) in the Hungarian University of Fine Art he won a scholarship to the Hungarian Academy of Rome that gave him the chance to deeply observe the eclectic and more symbolic European art life.
While he was in Rome he developed a new sense of perspective in the way he viewed art, this inspiration formed a fresh outlook that he carried with him when he began his MA studies at Leeds Metropolitan University in 2004. As a result, two years study in Leeds has enabled him to mature his ideal and move towards developing a new and monumental artistic programme.
Since 2003 he have held an ideal. He is searching for the connection between the metaphysical and materialistic senses of the objects. Research specifically focused on the ideology and philosophy of the objects. The motto of his art is turned to discover the difficult connections between objects and people.
He have always wished for ultimate simplicity, which, for him, is the best way to express himself. He believes too many words outstrip reality. He prepared a complex yet intimate code system, which provokes new questions without the need for answers, each question should lead to another. This open theory is the spine of his theme. A meditative, constantly connected and changeable associative organ.
The main motive contains an ordinary complex of objects transformed into a social space. Which creates a mirror image our symbolical identifications of our cult. Together they form a strange coherent atmosphere made by a lifetime of stored images and intuitions.
These items are our logical or illogical imaginations, complex structures of our memories. With them he tries to create an imagined situation, and transfer the audience into a natural world as plumbing them into the depths of our existence.
