Painter, designer, etcher, fresco-painter, sculptor, Leal Audirac is an expert of ancient painterly techniques such as fresco, encaustic, oil and egg tempera revisited by the artist in a very contemporary key.
The artist is also in constant dialogue with the inputs offered by the most advanced multimedia technologies and works closely with international research centres on innovative materials. In cooperation with prestigious design brands he has created a series of mathematical sculptures on the basis of 3D modeling where the iridescent colours of the surface react to the spectator’s movement and light ranging from purple to cobalt blue, and from green to gold.
He has participated twice in the Venice Biennale, the first one in the Centennial in 1995, and has shown his work in galleries and museums in the US, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Hungary, Rumania, Korea and South America. His works are present in importart private and museum collections around the world.
He has written numerous essays on art and literature and participates regulary as lecturer in international symposia regarding contemporary transvergencies of art, science and environment.
In 2003 he portrayed Pope John Paull II from life in a 10 meter long fresco, the largest papal portrait ever made.
In his research on fresco he has developed a special technique of “transportable fresco” on double curved synthetic supports in which the fresco monumentality and eternity merge with the lightness of Oriental drawing in the creation of a new pictorial language that could be defined as “monumental intimacy”.
