Leo Coyte

Leo Coyte is a Sydney-based painter whose recent work merges realistic, semi-figurative objects and bodies with abstract bursts of colour to create a kind of celebratory irreverence. He mines bits and pieces of various painting traditions that interest him to create his own unique style. The works he creates from this ‘push-and-pull’ process reflect a subconscious assemblage of fiction and his own memories and often give rise to a collection of protagonists immersed in the absurd and generate an open-ended narrative.
