Leonie Rhodes is an award winning
non-binary artist and senior arts educator from South London, currently based in Brisbane. Leonie Rhodes studied fine art sculpture at Chelsea School of Art London and figurative sculpture at the New York Studio School, New York. Alongside their academic career, Leonie has been making underground artwork for two decades throughout the UK, USA and Australia. Working across disciplines, Leonie specialises in fine figurative bronze work as well as paintings,installations,performance pieces and public participatory installations involving thousands of people.
Leonie dj’s internationally as their alter ego, a Black Cat called ‘ Boom Boom Bean Selecta’. Leonie’s work is politically driven and influenced by the figurative and religious history of art as well as contemporary underground culture. They attempt to subvert the misogynistic and racist canons by casting into longevity subjects who experience discrimination because of their sexuality, race, and lifestyle. Leonie acknowledges their privilege as a white person and tries to utilise their experience of lifelong discrimination as a non-binary person to inform their work and to respectful portraiture.
