MAYOH, Leigh

Leigh grew up in Saskatchewan and studied art at the University of Regina. After graduation he spent many years working as a home designer in the West Kootenays before eventually starting Mayoh Design. He moved his business to Victoria in 2019. While working as a designer Leigh has been in a handful of art shows as well as completing two large scale Public Art commissions for the City of Calgary

Leigh likes the physical qualities of art materials to add life to the narratives he is painting. Mushy paint and scribbled lines are his home base. Implied narratives drawn from found images encourage the viewer to create their own story about the artwork. Often referencing old black and white movies his artwork feels nostalgic.
