About

BIO

A 26 year old artist and hobbyist, studying for an MFA in computational Arts at Goldsmiths, Leverton writes in third person on his own personal website because it seems like the professional thing to do.

A full time amateur, Leverton constantly tries new methods of art creation, realises they aren’t getting him rich or famous very quickly and then moves on to a new mode. Currently on a hiatus from two dimensional painting because it’s hard, Leverton has spent much of his recent efforts in and on three dimensional digital spaces, utilising the multi variant possibilities of Autodesk Maya, Substance and the unreal engine, whilst casting a side-eyed glance at Zbrush with the promise he’ll concentrate on it tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow. Else-wise, Leverton can be found in three dimensional physical spaces accelerating with gravitational assistance.

A keen, loud, sweary, irate and loving 3D printer enthusiast, Leverton runs his machines to create either tools for art making, or the grand menagerie of plastic tat that fills up available surfaces and refuses to be useful.
