Born near the German-French border, Leander Fontaine worked from Germany before moving to the US in the mid Nineties. He currently lives near Downingtown, Pennsylvania.
Working as artist, illustrator and cartoonist since 1981, Leander has been published in magazines, newspapers, books; on magazine, book and CD covers; on websites and in other media (even tattoos) in many countries worldwide.
His drawings and paintings are in private collections in the US, Canada, Japan, UK, Germany, and France. As a syndicated cartoonist, Leander had his gag cartoons appear in many German-language newspapers and magazines.
From 2005 to 2012, he enjoyed his managerial and expert role in a company he founded (unrelated to his art) so much that he temporarily reduced his artistic output. In 2012, however, in line with his life-long fascination by monochromatic art, he begun a new generation of large-format ink-on-paper works.
