Art Students Participate in Leonardo ’01 ‘Death of a King’ Exhibition in NYC

Shaun El C. Leonardo, Self-portrait Azua (Commando), 2009.

Death of a King, the latest art exhibition by Shaun El C. Leonardo ’01, opened October 21 at the Praxis International Art Gallery in New York City.

The artist’s first solo show at the Praxis Gallery depicts a warrior who has survived the apocalypse.

The series of drawn and painted self-portraits impart the artist’s complex notions of masculinity and identity.

Death of a King also includes a wall graphic that students in this semester’s Senior Seminar Art Class designed and helped paint.

Students participating in the project include Rori Cremer ’11, Evan Farley ’11, Laura Magee ’11 and Allie Wilkinson ’11.
