The Cinematic Artist

Gabe Leonard's paintings take you into a world rich with inimitable atmosphere and narrative intrigue. 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. 

Outlaws, Musicians, and Drunken Poets - FUNDED

The first Hardcover Art Book in the collection includes selected works from Gabe's groundbreaking Oil Painting series "Outlaws, Musicians, and Drunken Poets". This high-quality Art Book is 12 x 12" and contains sixty-four full-color pages of Oil Paintings from Gabe's early days.

Who is Gabe Leonard?

In Gabe's own words, "I grew up in Linch, a small oil field town in the middle of nowhere, in the center of Wyoming. Linch was home to about 15 families who mostly lived in trailer homes. No grocery store, no stop signs, no police, no firemen, no church, no high school. The roads weren't paved, the streets weren't named, and I wasn't allowed to go past the cattle guard."  

 "It was my ability to draw that broke the social ice for me. Specifically, my ability to draw big foot trucks going through the mud. That caught the attention of some of the other kids who then started asking me to draw trucks for them. That's how I started to fit in and make friends."

Gabe describes his 'Venice Beach' days, "May 29th, 1999 was the first time I almost got into a fist fight over space. Jewelry makers and psychics will get in your face, they were very territorial, and they will gang up on you. There was a homeless guy that would get there early to make a sand mermaid and yell obscenities at everyone all day long. There was a guy balancing a stove on his chin. I was setting up across from a parking lot where I could sleep in my car overnight staking out my place."

"I find ideas and inspiration everywhere. Music, movies, friends, family, places I’ve been, philosophers, scientists, artists, film makers. I draw upon all these things, using friends as models, dressed up in costume and props for references. There’s a certain challenge in painting people who don’t look like they’re posing for a painting. Capturing body language and emotion in a figure is fun and is another requirement in the process of learning to see. Combined with the fractal nature of runs and drips, I exaggerate and distort space and forms in my paintings."

 "I’m learning how to see the world around me. I prefer to express my findings with oil painting on canvas. Although most of my work is figurative, I approach all my work as though they’re landscapes. Understanding how light, space, forms and patterns are perceived apply equally to painting a person as the landscape they’re in. There’s no end in learning how to paint, and that’s what keeps me doing it.

Risks and challenges

Book publishing and distribution is a lengthy process that often takes longer than expected. We have suggested an "expected date of delivery" based upon quotes from potential book manufacturers, but we will not be sure of the total order unless the Kickstarter is successful, nor of the official book manufacturer. Each manufacturer has different associated costs depending upon where the books are being manufactured, where they are stored, and where they are being shipped to.

In addition Gabe prefers to proof all prints of his artwork on the ground before they go to press, ensuring the highest quality product that most accurately captures the original Oil Painting colors. Consequently the process of "proofing" can be time intensive.

These variables will only become clear upon a successful Kickstarter completion, but never fear - we will ensure that you are up-to-date with each development, as it occurs, via Kickstarter Updates!
