From the banks of the River Arno to the quayside on the Tyne, Leonardo’s art has taken him from studies in Florence, Italy, to a busy career in Newcastle, England.
He was in Italy when his first comic book illustrations were published. It was then that Leonardo realised he was more interested in “the creative part of art instead of the act of drawing itself”. So he moved into the fields of concept art and design.
This led him to England, first in London working for a number of video game studios, and later to the northeast with Tyneside studio Atomhawk, where Leonardo remains as a freelancer.
1 Safe Area “Almost every concept artist has a zombie phase, and I wanted mine to be as cinematographic and realistic as possible. The safe area isn’t that safe…”
2 Planning Room “I decided to challenge myself on how an environment such as a simple room can tell a story without a visible character.”
3 Oh, hi there! “Like most of my personal works, this one started with simple shapes and a focus on composition. It was only then that I realised I could create an epic sea scene, even if I usually can’t take these things too seriously – which explains the title.”
