After working several years in different companies in the sector and complement their vocation; Drawing and painting, decides to take his skills as a graphic designer further and merge them with his other passion, urban art.

That’s what starts a launch his career as an artist in 2012 to coincide with his arrival in Barcelona.
It is in this city where he began a collecting torn posters from the streets to decorate their combinations with fabrics and paints, spray and different textures to keep the essence of street art.

​The young artist express with total freedom in art, rescuing icons that have marked an era in our lives and merging with dirt and language reflected in the street. In his works they are connected with the public using positive messages and provocative images that are made in reflection.

León has works sold in more than 20 countries and currently exhibits permanently at the prestigious “Graffik Gallery” in London (one of the most important urban art galleries in the United Kingdom) and in the United Arab Emirates, specifically in Dubái in the art gallery “Gallery 27“.

He continues working to expand his artwork as far as possible around the world.
