Leonardo Marcos is a French-Spanish multidisciplinary artist. He places poetry at the heart of his art, under different forms of expression: photography, cinema, theater, video, music and installations. His works arise from an avant-garde approach, particularly through the use of new technological processes that he applies to his creations.

He has developed a concept that he calls “The New Poetry” particularly through the creation of digital poems. His animated poems, in the form of projections and installations, are presented out of books, making poetry accessible to a wider audience.

He has published two books of interviews and photographs with Catherine Robbe-Grillet and Régine Deforges. He is represented by the Galerie du Passage which also exhibits the following artists: David Lynch, Karl Lagerfeld, Tahar Ben Jelloun and Pierre et Gilles.
