Leonardo Christian Anker Amadeus Vandal was born in 1988 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Vandal is a multidisciplinary artist, known to work across different mediums, often integrating performance and texts into his installations.
Leonardo started his career as a costume designer, creating costumes for the Royal Danish Ballet at the age of 19. These skills can be perceived in his work, in the use of fabric and stitched canvases.

After studying tailoring and philosophy, he was compelled to use art as a therapeutic practice to investigate the depths of his unconscious through highly personal work. The imagery of his work provokes an emotional and psychological effect on the viewer, making direct reference to aspects of his past.

Through the use of abstract forms, natural materials, and often unusual media, chosen for their symbolic potency, Vandal deals with notions of universal balance and contrasts between opposing forces.

Vandal has exhibited his work in countries like Denmark, Sweden, and Italy, where he had the opportunity in 2017 to present a performance at the Biennalle di Venezia.

Leonardo's work has been featured at Wallpaper Magazine, Rum International, Another, and Anniversary Magazine.
