'My art forms reflect the events, stories, myths, and people that play a role in shaping human beings. As an artist I have come to accept my role, which is to capture and then render art from life’s experiences. The human landscape is forever changing, presenting endless challenges and questions pertaining to the origins and truths behind any given event.' - Leonard Urso
