Charles Leak was born in Dallas Texas. He graduated from Texas University in 1976 and moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 1980. As one of the first fine artists of his kind to venture into Williamsburg, Charles rented a 4,000 square foot loft where he installed the plumbing and heating in which to create his art. Through the years, he has supported his art career by doing architectural renovations but is currently solely focused on expressing himself through his vision of the world today.
Originally, Charles' worked in large canvas formats but has chosen a more intimate expression today, and is excited to share his new works on paper with the world. These more intimate pieces are created in a variety of materials such as oil paint, enamel, gold and copper powder, and graphite on canvas and paper, This unique series began during the pandemic and has continued on. It is reflective of change. Viewing the seasons and nature with a keen eye on the way light and color transforms our perceptions, affecting our moods, our senses and our experiences. In addition, these new pieces allow the ability to group multiple works together to allow the viewer to engage in the experience and take it one step further in personalizing the dialogue and creating a story all one's own.
Charles is also a proud father and husband.
"When asked what artists have influenced me and my work, I say I am inspired by all the great artists from Da Vinci to Diebenkorn and all the great writers, musicians, and filmmakers. But my greatest influence has been the natural worldwe were given that surrounds us all." - Charles Leak
