ALSO OPENING IN GALLERY 2: LEEGAN KOO'S SOLO SHOW
In his second mini-solo exhibit for Copro Gallery Leegan Koo presents a series of surreal paintings with a mysterious underlying theme. Says Leegan about the work "I think what’s more important than my message is what people feel when they see my art. I love to hear about their own interpretations and what kind of connection they draw between my art and their experiences of life".
Leegan began drawing and painting at a young age by himself. He grew up moving from one metropolitan city to another—Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City; and cultural diversity and experience of dynamic urban life became the major source of his artistic inspiration, along with jazz, hiphop, and graffiti. In 2011, Leegan began to focus on painting cityscapes—a visual manifestation of memories and emotions attached to certain places—and experimented with various styles of realism and surrealism. In 2013, he moved to San Francisco to attend Academy of Art University where he received his first formal art education. In 2014, Leegan moved to Los Angeles and joined Leftbank Art, a corporation that specializes in producing and printing artworks for clients such asCrate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, Z Gallery. He currently lives and works as a freelance artist and art instructor in Los Angeles.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!
