Leonardo Devito’s imagination connects to experiences never lived, distant images, and random suggestions. The result is the creation of metaphysical, intimate, and silent spaces, disturbed only by the eye of the spectator who contemplates them.

About Leonardo Devito
Leonardo Devito was born in Florence in 1997. He graduated in 2020 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence after studying abroad at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna.
His training is strongly influenced by urban art, which he practiced for many years using the pseudonym Mehstre. Devito uses images loaded with meaning, coming from his personal experience or distant stories. Present images interweave with soul reminiscences, which in turn merge with bizarre and dreamlike representations, altering every spatiotemporal logic.
The artistic process hangs by different threads for each creation, color guides the image and transforms its apparent meaning, altering the compositions in depth. Currently, he is attending the two-year painting course at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin, where he lives and works.
