Léonard Combier is a 25 year-old French painter and illustrator living in Paris. He started drawing by himself when he was a child and since doing so.
The artist works with ink on paper, acrylic paint and poscas on canvas.
Léonard`s canvases seem like a big clutter, but when the spectator comes closer, he progressively dives in the artwork to go beyond the obvious foreground and discovers an infinity of hidden details dispersed for him. With this attention to detail – taken to the extreme – the artworks of Léonard Combier are made to be explored. They display an abundance of small characters and catch phrases popping up from everywhere. There is an undeniable dose of dark humor and assumed sexuality which is never intended to shock.
"My goal here is to amuse the spectator and to take him into my world. I want to make a maze out of each artwork, in which a person would wander and discover all the nooks and crannies".
His artworks had been exhibited in several galleries in Paris and Berlin.
