Patrick Leger earned his BFA at East Carolina University (ECU) in 2003, and his MFA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) in 2006. He worked as a freelance illustrator, creating artwork for the editorial, book, and advertising industries.
Paramount Series #5 demonstrates Leger’s signature style, where he creates a forboding urban landscape. He includes prominent figures that are often distorted to blend into a nocturnal background.
Leger’s exhibitions include the ECU Alumni Invitational Exhibition at Gray Gallery in Greenville, NC and Duke University in Durham, NC. Through his freelance illustration, he has created artwork for a variety of clients including The New York Times, Billboard Magazine, Wired Magazine, The New Yorker, HHMI, Wired (UK), Random House (UK), and the BBC.
