Leonie Bos is a Dutch artist who creates beautiful imagery by combining pattern, texture, shadow, grids and geometry. Her portfolio focuses on the built world, exploring how architecture impacts our lives and how the spaces around us make us feel. Interiors, exteriors, inanimate objects, Leonie breathes life into her subject matter, bringing heart and warmth to cold steel, metal and brick.
Despite their analogue appearance, Leonie uses Procreate, Photoshop and SketchUp to create her images. Combing a limited colour palette of subtle shades and tones, with the layering of texture, the digital illustrations resemble screen prints, complete with the ‘happy accidents’ which that medium brings.
When she steps away from the computer, Leonie seeks inspiration in her home city Amsterdam. Filling countless sketchbooks with drawings of her urban surroundings. As she explains though “I'm not particularly interested in charming canals and historic houses, it's the overall atmosphere I find inspiring. I love how this city never stops to amaze me, just the things I see on my daily commute.”
