Leonid Kozlov, a member of Ukrainian artistic society, completed his studies at the Kyiv Arts Academy in 1982. He is well-known as an artist who created an entire group of exquisite works dedicated to the art of the dance and ballerinas. Visitors will observe how that inspiration has impacted the gracefulness of his sculptures in bronze. Slender, posed figures express an internal energy that is skillfully captured in the artistry of Leonid Kozlov’s sculpture. He carries the spectator into his spiritual landscape which is deeply rooted in Ukrainian soil. Leonid Kozlov was born in Kyiv in 1954. His works are displayed in museums throughout Ukraine and are found in private collections in Germany, Great Britain, the United States, Sweden, Russia, France, and Finland. The artist has had various personal exhibits and projects including international exhibits in Vienna, Austria; Paris, France; Berlin, Germany; Kyoto, Japan; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States.
