Born in 1950 on the island of La Digue, Seychelles, Léon found his passion for art over the past years. He has been engaged in exploring and experimenting with various techniques, ideas and materials to create art works that go beyond conventional methods. He recourses to the trivial and ephemeral, be it in terms of image, material or object, whether found or recreated, to create his own visual imagery and vocabulary.
The work he presented at the Venice Biennale in 2015 is an attempt to synthesize those various influences and sources and to further document the notions of time, age and identity that are central to his work.
