Lo­ca­tion: Nether­lands Web: www.leon­tukker.art­sta­tion.com Email: leon­tukker@gmail.com ME DIA: Pho­to­shop, Cinema 4D For Nether­lands-based en­vi­ron­ment and con­cept artist Leon, it wasn’t paint brushes or pen­cils that sparked his imag­i­na­tion as a child. In­stead, it was LEGO that gave him a cre­ative out­let. Af­ter a failed ca­reer in sports, a friend showed him Cinema 4D and the op­por­tu­nity of a new di­rec­tion.

“It in­stantly felt like play­ing with LEGO again,” he re­mem­bers. “The love for 3D mod­el­ling and build­ing worlds made me prac­tise more and more in my free time. And so af­ter four years of school I grad­u­ated in Fe­bru­ary this year. I’ve been work­ing free­lance ever since, and tack­ling per­sonal projects in my spare hours.”

As well as be­ing a big fan of gi­ant cityscapes, Leon also chan­nels his love of science fic­tion into his art­work. “It’s amaz­ing that more and more of these con­cepts from the movies I loved as a kid – and still do – are be­com­ing re­al­ity.”
