Leon Keer is a world leading artist in the anamorphic street art having executed works around the globe.
A subtle or unsubtle message seems to be present in all of his work. Current issues are reviewed, such as environmental concerns and the livability of this world.
Keer is constantly aware of the playfulness and beauty versus the degradation around him, a contrast that he expresses and amplifies in his work and which he uses as a metaphor for life.
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.
The anamorphic landart paintings are temporary but the images are shared via social media all over the world.
He made 2 appearances at the VAF, the first mural was realized at 2400m, carrying on his shoulders part of the material, the location being reachable only by foot in summer, is a huge washing machine with a washing line and clothes drying in the sun.
The second, a huge wifi symbol painted with eco-friendly water soluble pigments, is part of the Land Art and encourages the viewer to disconnect from the internet and enjoy the landscape, reconnecting to nature.
Keer was awarded “Best Artist” at the Street Art Awards 2018.
