LEONARDO SANTAMARIA
Los  Angeles, CA

Artist Bio:

Leonardo Santamaria was born with a twin brother in Quezon City, Philippines. At a young age, he and his family immigrated to New Jersey. Soon after, they moved to Orange County, California where he eventually made his way to study at ArtCenter College of Design. He now lives and works in Los Angeles.

His paintings are influenced by 1990's anime, 2000's emo, and this decade's political discourse. When out of the studio, he spends his time with his friends enjoying tabletop games, healing his team as Moira in Overwatch, and drinking copious amounts of room-temperature water. Unfortunately, he and his twin do not share psychic abilities.
