Conrad Leach began his artistic career as a designer and development consultant for major fashion brands in Europe. Following 20 years of immersion in creative fields and the success of his first solo show of paintings in London. Conrad was selected as Artist in Residence for the Louis Vuitton CELUX project in Tokyo. While in Japan, Conrad pursued his fine art practice full time beginning in 2002, and developed the concept of 'Pop Ukiyo-e' which paved the way for a series of portraits of Japanese society and large scale paintings for the Kamizono-cho residence in Yoyogi Park.
The history of painters moving to Los Angeles for its quality of light, creative environment and artistic freedom has a long and storied history. The trend has recently accelerated and for many good reasons.
