"Born in Switzerland (1993) to Italian and Lebanese parents, Leonardo recalls his fascination with the bombed buildings of Beirut upon his first visit at the age of seven. The raw beauty of these concrete giants, turned into sculptures by the civil war, revealed his obsession with the aesthetics of urban decay.

Through abstraction and the use of industrial materials, he strives to capture the transitory state of objects when their meaning breaks down.

Leonardo holds an MA in Experimental Design from the Royal College of Art. He lives and works between London and Los Angeles."
