Leo Monahan, Paper Sculpture
Fine Art, Sculpture
In 1960, Leo began his career as a graphic designer, and created his first professional paper sculpture for Liberty Records, and went on to do over 1200 record covers. His work has been used by numerous clients in publishing, advertising and promotion and he is still very busy in these areas of illustration.
His fine art began in about 1980, and for the most part is based on his memories of life as a young boy at the foot of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills - a life peopled with miners, loggers, cowboys, farmers, and the Sioux.
His pieces are in numerous private collections and the Smithsonian Institution.
