Leon Kiva has made Winnipeg, Manitoba his home for over 40 years finding inspiration in Manitoba’s rich cultural life and diverse landscapes. His mediums are ceramic tiles and glazes. The unique technique of applying glazes and firing the tiles produces textured surfaces and enhances the artistic expression of each art piece. His works grace private art collections in Japan, United States, Israel, Germany, and Canada. His paintings, installed in Winnipeg’s City Hall Courtyard, tell the story of the city and its people. Leon lives in Winnipeg and works in his “Complex Studio Gallery”.
