Pereznieto's exquisite sculptures and paintings play upon our disavowed dreams, sensibilities and longings to persuade us to return to some of the romantic ideals and motifs that modern art has, for the most part, forsaken. Romanticism, but with a difference. His art couples a nostalgia for romanticism with an acute sense of the needs of modernity.
Leonardo Pereznieto has exhibited in prominent galleries of cities such as Paris, Florence, London, Montecarlo, New York, Los Angeles, Mexico, etc. and has delivered talks about his art all over the world including the Celebrity Centre Florence and the University of Michigan. He received the Mozart Prize for the Arts in Nice, France and was awarded by the International Art Festival in New York.
Together with writer Claudia Moscovici, Leonardo is cofounder of the cultural movement of postromanticism.
Postromanticism is a contemporary artistic movement that places passion at the center of human life, art and poetry. In painting and sculpture it emphasizes representational art that depicts the beauty of human figures and evokes sensuality and the richness of human emotions.
