Leon Keer learned to paint through designing and producing large advertising murals for multinationals such as Coca-Cola, Heineken and Absolut. He has ex¬ecuted commissions in Europe, The United States, The United Arabic Emirates, Australia and several Asian countries.
A message seems to be present in his work. Current issues are reviewed, such as current environmental concerns and the liveability of this world. The artist observes great impotence and with that a certain degree of indifference from the individual. Leon Keer is constantly aware of the playfulness and beauty versus the degradation around him, a contrast that he expresses and amplifies in his work.

His paintings reflect his thoughts, confronting the viewer with the diseased spirit of our times, visible decay counter-pointing a timeless longing for un¬spoiled beauty. Leon Keer works with a mixture of techniques, uses a rich va¬riety of materials, ranging from professional acrylic paints to adhesives, solvents, primers and tar. His subjects and images are entirely contemporary. Leon Keer exhibited his artwork in various European and US Art Galleries and has been showed at several Art shows all over the world.

Street art

During his career Leon Keer often presented his art by live-action-painting per¬formances. His ability of performing as a street painter, lets him share the joy of painting with the public. At this moment Leon Keer is a world leading artist in the anamorphic street art. The 3d street paintings are temporary but the images are shared via social media all over the world.
He says: ‘Every street art piece is unique and belongs to the street and its resi¬dents, the temporary fact about this artform strengthens its existence’.

Especially for the 10 year anniversary of Dutch Design Hotel Artemis Leon Keer designed a 3d mural called 'Childhood. The goddess Artemis depicted as 10 year old girl in the chamber of her youth. A sensitive image to indicate that the goddess inside you is also a vulnerable child longing for affection.

As a spectator of the mural you can interact with the artwork, on the stool or under the chair. Strike a pose and you will be part of the painted illusion.
