Portrait of the Artist


Brandon Leudke, Artist

LEUDKE CREATIVE
B.F.A. Hons., Studio Arts
DPS, OTA, UAE, eCumL, FHJ

Brandon Leudke creates multidimensional, multimodal and multidisciplinary art that evokes a tantalizing voyage through the eyes, heart, hands and feet of an idiosyncratic artist — zenfully flowing as a prescient mind of meaning towards that which is terribly good, magically mysterious and frighteningly awesome.

His diverse performances and artworks — paintings, drawings, illustrations, sculptures, photographs and videos – have been installed in public and private venues, exhibited in galleries and utilized in significant commercial projects.

Bursting with infectious energy and bold creativity by nature, as an actor in theatre and film, Brandon's improvisational spirit and sharp wit commands his audience's attention to the farcical and profound alike.

He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Honors Specialization in Studio Arts, from the University of Western Ontario.
