Canadian born Czech based artist Leigh Anthony Dehaney’s background is a mixture of fine arts and technology. After graduating from Mount Royal College, Canada with an Arts and Science Diploma Dehaney obtained his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Calgary. In 2003 he was accepted into the Alberta College of Art + Design where he was drawn towards Media Arts & Digital Technologies. Best known for his visual work, Dehaney’s influences often include Soviet constructivist architecture, industrial ruins, painted dumpsters, vintage technology, retro futurism, apocalyptic titanism, weimar bauhaus, new objectivity, things machiavellian, and mechanical systems. Dehaney’s personal practice/gallery work often depicts portraiture within a derelict and contaminated world, much of which has been largely influenced by unmarked visits to industrial Cuba and Eastern Germany. His visual artwork and experimental videos have been exhibited and featured both locally and internationally, most notably with CBC's Arts Review (Canada), Gabrichidze Gallery (Brussels), Shufflesome (Germany), Jones Soda Co. (USA), and Fotofest (USA). Professionally Dehaney consults as a film+televison “graphics dude” through his company Dravenfield Ltd. founded in 2004. Currently he spends his free time documenting industrial/urban environments in Eastern Europe and is working on his next experimental short flick and photo series “Tenement+IV”, which he hopes to have completed by May 2009.
