A solo exhibition by Belfast-based street artist and printmaker Leo Boyd, which explores the idea that we are living in a computer simulation - a world in which the fake and the fictional are held in the highest regard.

About

This solo exhibition presents a series of artist-created cultural artefacts that span the history of a Simulated World; from early tech worship etchings and mass produced sim erotica, to pixelated agitprop and intimate portraits of simulated individuals.

This new series of experimental screenprints, paintings and mixed media pieces throws a satirical light on our deep seated and often confused ideas of what it is to be real and asks ‘If you can’t tell the difference, what the f**k does it matter anyway?’

Leo Boyd was born in Hastings and studied for a BA in Fine Art in Context in Bristol before moving to the South of Ireland in the year 2000 to study and live.  In 2011 he moved to Belfast where he screenprints full time. He sees it as a liberating art form, democratising the visual image, and encompassing sculpture, collage, photography and painting.
