Abstract Painting Workshop

Abstract Painting Workshop


The artist Leyla Murr will introduce you to painting abstract landscapes. You’ll be using acrylic paints to explore composition through form, colour and texture.  

All materials are included, suitable for all levels. 

Leyla Murr
Leyla Murr is a Croatian born abstract artist who works from her home studio in Bingley, a larger studio space in Shipley, and from temporary studio spaces whilst she travels. 

Her work is inspired by the landscape and visual memory. She enjoys the process of revealing images that live in her subconscious and colours that she’s absorbed somewhere along the way that contribute to a fusion of shades and compositions.      

Her paintings are constructed by coordinating different elements, the application of paint on canvas, the use of colour and spontaneous mark making. The process is rarely planned and paintings undergo many changes until she achieves a balanced painting that feels resolved.   

Her exhibition, Abstract Expressions of the Yorkshire Landscape is in the Porch Gallery at Left Bank Leeds throughout June and July. For further information please see the Left Bank Leeds website [].
