Meet Leigh Cooney. Leigh is a globally collected, Irish born Canadian pop-folk artist. His work has been compared to Francis Bacon, Otto Dix, and the German Expressionists, but due to the self-taught nature of his paintings he is most closely associated with the loosely connected international group of "Neo-Outsiders" as coined by Dr. Melissa Westbrook. LEIGH is the first of 25 Inspirations to come brought to you by Adam James. 25 Inspirations will showcase 25 people that inspire, influence and reflect Adam James as a filmmaker and photographer. Enjoy.
