Biography

Brief

Leclerc’s artistic development is dual. Creative director at Costa Leclerc Design Inc., he uses his creative skills to market his client services. Visual artist, he applies art as a mean to explore free expression. His paintings conveys the physical pleasure that flowed from the feeling of joy of movement and the deep sensuousness of matter meeting mind.

Leclerc’s recent works are inspired essentially by scientific developments, especially the theory of chaos in the realm of physic. He has found in the random combination of forms — pieces of papers, explosion of forms and symbols — a visual language that is closed to the origin of life, by using chance and fate as the main source of his inspiration.

Leclerc’s expression is at ease both with brushes and paint and vectors and bytes. He has found that vector images allow him to work without size restrictions, a characteristic that complements his amazement for the infinity of scales. Leclerc believes that artists have to confront the relevance of their visual language by working in collaboration with other artists. The collective Padejo was born to respond to that challenge.
