Leon Reid IV is a Brooklyn based artist best known for his street art installations made in New York and London at the turn of the 21st Century. In 2005, Reid IV began completing commissioned based public art installations in cities such as Berlin, Sao Paulo and Stavanger Norway. In 2011, Reid IV developed a new body of work titled TECH-ART: Soul for technology™. This new body of work reflects the look and feel of the information age in traditional drawing painting and sculpture.
