“Leonardo is an Italian artist, originally studying music and new technologies at Conservatorio in Florence, Italy.
In 2007 he completed his art studies at Ircam and at the Centre Pompidou, Paris where he formed and developed his distinctive visual signature that is recognizable throughout his work.
Leonardo is the true definition of a multi-media artist as his talent can hardly be constrained within the limitations of one label.
As a motion graphic designer and sound designer, Leonardo has worked for various fashion brands and animation studios; and has been commisioned by diverse European art galleries, museums and concept stores to create short movies and interactive installations using Max/Msp/Jitter.
Leonardo made a name for himself through his long time collaboration with iconic fashion store LUISAVIAROMA; since 2009 Leonardo has created bespoke visuals and audio installations also for some of the most exclusive fashion-brands.
Leonardo never sleeps and lives between NYC, Denmark and Italy.” via Leonardo Worx homepage
