About the Artist

Mark Leysen is an Orange County artist whose paintings are rooted in abstract expressionism.  His strong sense of color and rhythm shapes the compositions, while the more formal aspects of geometric forms give balance and harmony. 

Leysen earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in painting and drawing from California State University, Fullerton.  His art has been exhibited throughout California and Mexico in various group and one-person exhibitions, including; the UCLA Hammer Museum, the San Bernardino Museum, the Laguna Art Museum, Orange County Museum of Art, the Irvine Fine Arts Center, Chapman University, Museo de Arte in Queretaro, Mexico, California State University at Fullerton, the Los Angeles County Museum ARS Gallery, and Grand Central Art Center in Santa Ana.

On Thursday, December 15, artist Mark Leysen will discuss his artwork and his latest book at reception and talk beginning at 7 p.m. in the Central Library Friends Room. The free program will include a slide show and question and answer period following the artist's talk.
