Gabe Leonard's paintings take you into a world rich with inimitable atmosphere and narrative intrigue. What tales lie behind these interesting characters? And where will their stories take them?
Leonard spent his early years in the mountain state of Wyoming, sketching wildlife and selling them to his school friends for a dollar. After graduating from Columbus College, Ohio with a BA in Fine Art, he moved to Los Angeles where he first honed his skills on the ultra-competitive boardwalk of Venice Beach.
His work captures rich moods by combining the free brushwork of an expressive artist combined with the lighting and framing of a seasoned Hollywood cinematographer. Drawn to rugged and romantic film noir characters, Leonard merges technically brilliant figurative painting with a finely crafted cinematic atmosphere, creating snapshot moments full of narrative possibilities.
The trademark runs and drips in his work are a deliberate break from academic restrictions and allow him to be more expressive, free and loose. Leonard's style is deeply rooted in the European artistic tradition, drawing particularly on the work of his heroes such as Rembrandt, Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele.
Following a string of sell-out shows and acquisitions of his work by high profile collectors including Quentin Tarantino, Ruben Fleischer and Charlie Sheen, Leonard has become one of the most sought-after artists in the world, collected in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
translates to 'Two druken friends". These two worms may have had a little too much tequila together, and the lime just couldn't keep up. Good times! But olive us know that tequila can kick you like a donkey, so beware and be safe!

By Michael Godard "Never Give up"
"Remember that Cancer is Just a Chapter in your life, never your whole story. Once you become fearless, your life becomes limitless - Giving up is not an option.
First glance the lemon seems overwhelmed, but the shadow shows the lemons true nature. And the twist in the glass morphs into a cancer symbol. This painting about all those who join in the courage to fight Cancer."
... “I could not think of a better character to fill the position of the joker. Mr. Bunny Boozehound is my party animal and wise cracking character who can often be found in odd situations sporting a cocktail.” - Fabio Napoleoni
Fabio Napoleoni NEW RELEASE “Sunday Afternoons" Paper size 15.5 x 17, Ap: 52, Sn: 156
Sunday afternoons was inspired during a drive Fabio and his wife took on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) while visiting a few beaches along the way. While painting this piece he began thinking back to his early teen years, “I remember that the neighbors across the street nearly every Sunday during the summer and fall would go for a drive. What made it memorable for me were the automobiles, their garage housed a 59 Blue Cadillac convertible with the large trunk wings and a white 57 Chevy Bel Air. They both would snuggle up close and drive away in the Cadillac only to return and repeat the drive again but this time around with the Chevy.” www.artcentergallery.com
" Nearly 8 years ago I created the Yeti under a pen name. For years I worked on developing him into the version you see today. The yeti has appeared on only a small handful of canvas and paper originals over the last 3 years. This will be his debut as a limited edition print. I introduce you to, Darwin". - Fabio Napoleoni
Well here is the first sighting and clear vivid pictures of the illusive animal known as various names. Yeti, Sasqactch, Big foot to name but a few of the various names around the world.
Fabio has taken this folk lure animal and has named it after Charles Darwin , which of course is perfect because of the theory of evolution. And makes this lovable version of Fabio's Imagination, a Yeti with heart. And this Yeti has only one mission in the creators life.
