Entering the Beaux Arts de Troyes where I obtained my Higher Diploma in Art and Techniques in 1990, I worked as a model maker, designer then computer graphic designer and at the same time a production Artisanal (decorative objects on all supports) which appears on local markets, festivals, then exhibitions follow. Acrylic and collage are the essential elements of my art tinged with tenderness where poetry predominates. For some time now, my universe with its refined graphics and inhabited by enigmatic beings tells colorful and gentle stories in images. If it is adorned with dreaminess and surrealism, it is not disconnected from reality.” Biography of Patrick Léon: “Born in 1950 in the village of Aix-en-Othe, Patrick Léon was raised by his grandparents, in an unpretentious environment. Very early on, he developed an interest in painting and art in general and he himself began to create in his corner, portraits, landscapes, the beginnings of a passion which would never leave him. Having to give up joining the fine arts, his family not allowing him, he nevertheless continued to paint, very quickly orienting his style towards the abstract and color. A style which will lead him to rub shoulders with other artists such as Philippe Tykoczinski or Guy Péqueux, the latter providing him with his professional advice. His influence will lead to the work of Patrick at another level, but it was through autodidactics that he refined his art, constantly renewing himself, evolving both in the type of support and in the technique, developing his universe, always richer and more varied, vibrant and dreamlike.”
