It is through art that we communicate what it feels like to be alive.
And when you ask me "What is the point of art?" I would answer : "What is the point
of human beings?"
Leyla is a prolific Expressionist painter who engages colour in all her work. It is through her artistic freedom and the ability to express a fragment of feeling, a memory or an impression in an un-prescribed way that a flow of creativity is allowed to emerge.
Every painting reflects that journey of introspective spontaneity during which the artist engages all her senses. Every work is a product of unique creative experience.
Artists that have influenced Leyla are : Rauschenberg, Larry RIvers, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, Chagall, Jean Philippe Dubuffet, Anslem Keifer, Sigmar Polke.
Leyla's work has received some excellent reviews from Saatchi Gallery , she has been chosen as an artist of the month on several websites and has exhibited at the prestigeous The Mall Galleries in London.
