Leo Greenfield is an artist with a passion for drawing. His works concentrate on illustrating from memory the ever-changing space of street life and culture. On paper or online, Leo expresses the silhouette and patterns of contemporary dress, creating intimate social portraits of people, places and their communities.

Since 2008 Leo has shared these drawings online via this blog, which has since grown into an archive of impressions of fashion culture observed from his own experiences. The project has seen the artist gain invitations to international Fashion Weeks in Sydney, Paris and London and in 2013 he undertook an artist residency in the atelier of Martin Grant Paris.

Leo set up a studio in London in 2014 and has since contributed to The Daily Telegraph UK, L'Officiel, Vogue, Sunday Style and Architectural Digest; illustrated numerous publications for Hardie Grant Books UK including Style Forever by Alyson Walsh, and collaborated with brands such as Gucci, Chloé and Louis Vuitton.

Leo sees contributing to such publications as an extension of his work with galleries and museums. Since 2008 he has been both an exhibitor and curator of exhibitions with artist-run spaces, regional art galleries and commercial galleries. Most notably was at the leading Melbourne gallery, Gertrude Contemporary, exhibiting an animated piece and at the National Gallery of Victoria where the Fashion and Textiles curator commissioned him to create an online drawing project and present a public lecture on his artistic process.

Recent exhibitions include Drawing Paris, Rue Lucien Sampaix, December 2013 and Without My Camera, Chiltern Street Studio, London, July 2015. The artist's work is currently on show at The Barr Smith Library in Vitrine, curated by Mirna Heruc, University of Adelaide.

Leo's studies in art and fashion were honed with a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts (2009). Prior to this, he completed at Post-Graduate Diploma of Art History (2006) at Adelaide University after studying painting and Asian Art History at the Japanese University Kansai Gaidai. This institution was attended in connection with his Bachelor of International Studies (2004) also taken at Adelaide University where he was Arts Editor of the university publication On Dit.
