Leon is a Guinness Book World Record Holder for the largest street painting ever created. Leon Keer (1970) learned to paint through designing and producing large advertising murals for multi nationals (since 1997) such as Coca-Cola, Schweppes, Heineken, Red Bull, Reef, Evian, Royal Club, Remy Martin and Absolut Vodka. He has executed commissions in the Netherlands, Germany and Australia. His knowledge of materials, acquired by painting on all kinds of foundations for his clients, led to an interest in experimenting with materials and techniques. Leon Keer works with a mixture of tech niques, uses a rich variety of materials, ranging from professional acrylic paints to adhesives, solvents, primers and tar. His subjects and images are entirely contemporary: they could be freeze frames from a video clip. A message – formerly so important in all of Keer’s commercial work – also seems to be present in his own work.
