Leo Villareal's Light Works

I saw this quite recently although Leo's gorgeous and largest art work over San Francisco-Oakland's bridge was all over the news in march this year.

Leo's works are permanently featured in at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York. So who is Leo Villareal? Leo born in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is a pioneer in the use of LEDs and computer-driven imagery and known both for his light sculptures and architectural, site-specific works. ” In 1997, he programmed a 16-light strobe structure that he brought to Burning Man.

My mum is an artist so I grew up appreciating a good art when I see one and this is it! Check out my favourite pieces from Leo's collection

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! You can also visit Leo's website for more work and videos of his stunning installations.
