Shaun Leonardo was born in 1979 in Queens, New York, and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Through drawing, performance, and public participatory workshops, Leonardo explores the constraints of masculinity and the ways that systems of oppression and violence have crafted and contorted societal expectations of Black and Brown bodies. In his work as a multidisciplinary artist, Leonardo is informed by his past experiences as an athlete and an educator; physical embodiment and community dialogue are key tools of his practice.
