Handsome Frank are very pleased to announce our latest signing - Leonie Bos. Growing up in a house designed by her father, it's no surprise that Leonie became an illustrator obsessed with buildings and interiors.
Originally a painter, she studied at the Academy of Arts, before squatting in Amsterdam, "painting without a heater wearing gloves." The birth of her daughter was the catalyst for developing the style she practices today. Her work is both minimal and modernist, taking influence from traditional printmaking. Working digitally she uses semi-transparent coloured areas to create shades and tones by layering them with a limited palette and the negative 'white' of the paper itself.
