Leonardo Drew is an artist with a singular vision. He turns discarded wood scraps into mesmerizingly chaotic sculptures that appear to embody the essence of waste and its effects on the world. Even if that is not the intention of the artist, it goes to show that Leonardo Drew's works of art are thought-provokingly abstract, engaging people in different ways.
Born in Tallahassee, Florida, Leonardo Drew now splits his time between San Antonio, Texas, and Brooklyn, New York. His most recent sculptures, which are currently on display at the Sikkema Jenkins Gallery in New York, are towering monstrosities that are mounted to the walls. Snaking through all four rooms in the gallery, Leonardo Drew's sculptures are attention-grabbing.
