Leon Keer is a Dutch pop-surrealist artist. The multi-talented Leon Keer is initially known for his anamorphic street art. His art has been showcased in Europe, the United States, Russia, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Australia, New Zealand, and several Asian countries. He generally paints contemporary themes which involves environmental concerns and raises questions about the livability in this world. His paintings reflect his thoughts, confronting the viewer with the diseased spirit of our times, visible decay counter-pointing a timeless longing for unspoiled beauty. During his career Leon Keer often presented his art by live-action-painting performances. His ability of performing as a street painter, lets him share the joy of painting with the public. The anamorphic paintings are temporary but the images are shared via social media all over the world. 

Leon says: “Every street art piece is unique and belongs to the street and its residents, the temporary fact about this artform strengthens its existence.”

Next to his amazing street art he started an art project in 2007. This project is called  ‘Ego Leonard’ and features giant super sized Lego figures who washed up on the shore of various beaches around the world. Later on he started to create paintings of the Lego character named ‘Ego’. To Ego everyone is equal, he feels home wherever he is. A better world can be crafted simply by allowing other people to be different. Leon Keer says the following on this: “People don’t all need to agree or have the same beliefs or standards. A sense of freedom in solidarity arises if you can suspend or even let go of your judgements about others.” The paintings which are made in the name of Ego Leonard, focus on this particular subject.
