Draw Into Paint

Lieven Deconinck, Gaëtan Begerem and Robin De Vooght
Collective since 2000
Born in Ghent, Belgium
Live and work in Ghent, Belgium

Leo GABIN have worked as a collective since the early 2000's in a variety of media including video, painting, drawing and sculpture. Leo GABIN teaches as a collective at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, where they received their Fine Art degrees.

Leo GABIN take inspiration from the internet's proliferation of media images, particularly the wealth of information that uncomfortably straddles the private and public realm, and harvest content from this never ending morass.

The work and methodology implicitly explores the transience and capriciousness that underpins youth culture. References to sex, violence and celebrity, nestle among a canny social critique that manifests through an aesthetic which combines the influence of the street art they were exposed to as teens with a consciousness of art world trends.
