rob.d.leon is Hamburg based artist, musician and grade school teacher Robert Schröder.

He’s been painting, drawing and creating pictures since his childhood days. After spending some time on the road and at the University of Fine Arts Hamburg, he graduated at Leuphana University Lüneburg with a degree in teaching and a focus on art mediation.

Having spent most of his time in independent sub-cultures, his pictures are related to the aesthetics of urban art, but also play around with aestheticism and are polished with his love for clean design.

Animals, masks and ghosts. Collages, placeholders or new beginnings. Coincidence or construction. The hidden secret or the childlike game. The picture as manifestation of the moment. From the poetic play of our self or the shaping of our world. Always looking for a balance between different elements to create a new moment of their own.
