American, born 1961, lives in New York City
Leonardo Drew was born in Tallahassee, Florida, and moved to Bridgeport, Connecticut, when he was six years old. He began making art at a very young age, and pursued formal art training at Parsons School of Design, New York (1981–1982), and The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art (BFA, 1985). Drew is best known for his abstract, monumental sculptural assemblages. His works are never titled because the artist does not want to impose an interpretation on the viewer; instead they are assigned numbers. Drew has had many one-person exhibitions in national and international museums, including the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin, Ireland (2001), the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC (2000), and The Bronx Museum of the Arts in Bronx, New York (2000).
