Born in 1969 in South Louisiana, Leon Verdun has, from an early age, always enjoyed his ability to draw and paint. Equally adept in producing portraits, abstract art and non-figurative works, he endeavored to develop his skills further.
While studying at the Art Institute of Houston, Leon began painting more abstracts and non-figurative works in mixed-media. He soon developed his own unique style of image using particular techniques in the acrylic medium.
Currently Leon has carefully migrated his exquisite painting techniques into the medium of oils. While his latest oil paintings reveal that nothing is lost moving to this new material, his work now has so much more depth and intense colors.
After receiving his degree in Graphic Design and Illustration, he began devoting attention to his passion for painting. His unique and remarkable sense of design allows him to create impressive images on his canvases. Amidst his bold and confident passages lie many softer subtle tones, providing an interesting contrast and additional drama to the powerful images of this Louisiana artist. Also, Leon's abstract art has many unique qualities not found in typical acrylic works or even fine oil paintings.
If you would like to inquire about any of his current works, upcoming projects or would like to a new or similar painting to those offered here, please feel free to contact Leon Verdun.

"Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known."
"The many great paintings of the world, all make the point as clear as possible: The soul cannot thrive in the absence of art. If you don't want the pleasure of art, you are not human; and if you are not human, you don't have a soul."
