Leo Eguiarte is a Los Angeles-based multimedia artist. His psychedelic paintings explore power and spirituality through symbolic shapes and striking color schemes. Leo bases his ideas around the concept of ‘holographic conjuration’.
“Holographic conjuration is a visual metaphor for the illusionary state we as people are subjected to by our material desires. The work addresses issues of perceived power and its consolidation by a selected minority, the psychological, social, spiritual, and cultural effects of which are visible on both micro and macro levels. Our current sociocultural dynamic is one that encourages continual separation and division within our communities, environments and true selves. As an artist, I feel that it is my responsibility to document my surroundings and to invite commentary that addresses critical issues affecting humanity and our ecosystem. The work is designed to confront these ideas of influence and desire and to empower the viewer to consider alternative choices for the ways in which we interact with and participate in the world, encouraging a constantly evolving perspective and reminding us of a shared existence.” Leo Eguiarte
