Leone McComas is a Canadian-Nigerian Artist, Muralist, and Designer. She is Toronto-based, London (UK) born, and bred below sea level in the Netherlands. Her painting practice examines ideas of the self and the internalization of social ideals, which are conceptualized through surreal relationships between figure and post-digital landscapes. Following a growing sense of artistic responsibility, Leone creates work from her source of life to counter-act the increasing presence of anxiety, social polarization, and emotional fatigue. Metaphors of transformation sift the surface of her work, reflecting ideas of change and shifted perspectives; while contrasting matte black paint magnifies the sensation of renewal despite the unknown. The desire to maintain luminosity in her paintings has lead to the development of a unique transparency-driven painting process, which produces highly detailed, saturated, and translucent oil paintings that glow from within. McComas graduated from OCADU receiving her BDes in 2013 and participated in the Faculty of Art’s 36th Florence Off-Campus Program. She is a recipient of the OIEOS 2010 Scholarship, OAC 2018 Visual Arts Project Grant, and is part of the inaugural Akin Artists in residence at MOCA Toronto.
