During his career, Leon Keer has often presented his art at live-action painting performances. His ability to perform as a street painter offers him the chance to share his joy of painting with the public. The anamorphic works of art are temporary, but the images are shared via social media all over the world. Leon Keer: “Every work of street art is unique and belongs to the street and its residents; the temporary aspect of this art form actually reinforces its existence”.
