Leon Loucheur is a self-taught San Francisco-based artist, having received his BA in Social Science from Humboldt State University. This education informed the art that followed, establishing a foundation rooted in the academic study of Psychology, Sociology, History, Economics and more. This experience, married to a 15 year career bartending, is reflected in Leon’s work as he explores social themes through the lens of intoxication and unruly behavior.
Leon has been exhibiting with Modern Eden for over a decade, including his debut solo exhibition in 2013, Sentient City. His journey has since come full circle, back to where it all began, with a new series of paintings and drawings that speak to the evolution of a dedicated artist and enduring friend of the gallery.
