Leon enrolled for a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts Degree at the University of the Free State (UFS) in 2016 and completed in 2019. In 2020 he enrolled for a Master’s in Fine Arts at the UFS. Leon is interested in science and art, and the relationship between these two remote fields. In his art he previously explored the impact of facial detection applications on society. His recent inquiries into the infinity of our universe and the infinity of black holes inspired him to find patterns in unusual places in an attempt to unlock new meaning. Leon is currently working on scientific images - how they are made and how they are perceived by society. His artworks have been included in the finalists selection for the Phatshoane Henney New Breed Art, the PPC Imaginarium and SASOL New Signature competitions.
