Leon Scott-Engel (b.1999) is a London based multidisciplinary artist who graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a BA in Painting and Printmaking in 2022. He has since exhibited with a number of galleries including Black White Gallery, D Contemporary, Warbling, and was a recipient of the Richard Ford Award in 2021 (Research residency at the Museo del Prado, Madrid) and the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers Fine Art Prize in 2018.
He sees his work as an assemble of fragments, all sharing a common denominator: figuration. The body acts as a zero-point, its physicality avoiding abstract re-invention, rather producing something more concrete; something to relate to physically. He uses it as a way of contextualising a thought, or mental image, often one of the insular experience of the self, into something material.
