Description

Leon de Bliquy, born in Johannesburg in 1943, attained an M.A (Fine Art) at Rhodes University. Since then, he has pursued a successful career as an artist who travels extensively, drawing on sights and cultural exchanges for inspiration. Leon's work is featured in collections at the IZIKO (S.A. National Gallery), Pretoria Art Museum, Bloemfontein Art Museum, Kimberley Art Museum, The Nelson Mandela Art Museum, Durban Art Museum, The Rembrandt Art Foundation, Sanlam and SASOL.

A Gathering of Jesters explores the idea of the fool as a cultural phenomenon. Leon has been creating a series of lithographs exploring this concept over a period of time between a studio on a mountainside farm outside Stellenbosch and Atelier Grande Village, a studio near Massignac, AngoulÍme in France. These lithographs will be exhibited with a series of paintings that express the true poetic nature of the artist.
