Kieran Leach

by Kieran Leach

Painting on repurposed London bus panel

80 x 63cm

Hand signed unique work

Kieron Leach (British) is a street artist in a different sense. His objects are a curated collection of anonymous sculpture, seemingly crafted by an engineer and plucked from the high street. They are junction boxes and meaningless machines, textured by their time hidden amongst their related mundane street objects. His sculpture is contextually post-vandalism, in which the art is in the observation rather than the creation. He is ostensibly a model maker, recreating the individual items apart from their greater systems; the items that poke their heads out of the sidewalk and inform us of a spiderweb of infrastructure beneath. Leach also works in figurative sculpture, drawing on subcultures from football to construction, highlighting the peculiar material outputs of each. Asides from sculpture Leach is also an excellent furniture and set constructor, all skills that feed back into his art. He has recently exhibited in London and Manchester and presents a piece made from a salvaged London bus in this auction.

Framing: In order to ensure the most economical shipping and environmental cost, we send our art to the customer unframed. However, for the best presentation of the bus panels we suggest it is framed upon arrival. We advise that the piece floats in a the middle of a black frame without glass, hung at eye level. 

Popcorn bidding: If a bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional five minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.

VAT: Standard rate item. VAT @ 20% added to bid (hammer) price if the winning bidder is based in the UK or Europe. A buyer's invoice will show the hammer price (bid price) of the lots bought and VAT will be charged separately.
