Collection: Les Luxemburger
Leslie Luxemburger started making comic books at the age of six. His work evolved into character design, and acrylic painting (realist landscapes), as well as graphite work. Luxemburger studied at Sheridan College giving him a solid foundation in art, design and classical animation.
Luxemburger produced simple line test videos and directed and produced stop motion animation films for children and teens. His work evolved further, when in 2004 - 2008, he completed a Bachelor and Master degree of Environmental Studies (York University), with a focus on creating eco-city concepts and 3D models. From 2005 - 2016,
Luxemburger participated in several eco-art festivals, art fairs and group and solo exhibitions of his work ( Twist Gallery, Project Gallery, Riverdale Art Walk, etc), with the intention of gaining gallery representation and commissions. Commissions pushed his artistic practice so far; I longed to create impact through my work, so I studied 3D Animation at Seneca College (grad. 2017). Since 2017 Luxemburger has been a freelance 3D artist, animator and painter. Luxemburger has also been teaching visual art since 2012.
As a visual artist, my art practice has always been focused on exploring hidden facets and design elements of the city, with a particular focus on the ways that natural forms, biodiversity and natural forms, compositions and functions survive, thrive, are destroyed or adapt. My art practice has encompassed acrylic painting (representational and realism), graphic novels, mixed-media (eco-art practice), and most recently 2D, stop motion and 3D animation.
The key research questions and themes my recent 3D and plein air landscape work has focused on is: "how are humans connecting/interacting with, treating, and viewing the natural world today, especially within an urban context?"; and, "can we disconnect ourselves from the landscape around us, or is our surrounding landscape and the places we like, work, recreate and observe, an intimate part of us and an extension of our individual and collective beings?" I am also producing 3D short films and still renders, paintings, sketches, graphic novels (earthchartergraphicnovel.com) and stop motion animations, that explore and convey these landscape changes, and the adaptation/destruction of nature.
