Michael Leon knows a lot about making things happen with your own hands and these DIY flags are the main example of that. Flags are a universal symbol of many things; they represent struggle, sovereignty, hope, togetherness and a whole myriad of other subjects. For his Vexhall series, Leon created hand made flags that appeal to the ruggedness and grittiness of DIY projects.

There's nothing quite like a flag when it comes to trying to make a statement. While art pieces, paintings and photo collections can be nice, a flag screams the statement you're trying to make louder and clearer than anything else. Leon takes things like the American flag and reworks them into something much hazier, blurrier and less stringent than the flags we're used to.
