MR LEO MATEUS | He/They
I am an illustrator, video editor, & animator living in the North of England with my partner, a cat named Theo, and our rescue dog, Effie. I have a passion for amplifying things that are usually silenced.
Using a combination of traditional cross hatching, and modern digital art, I try to create pieces that create a sense of empowerment in the viewer.
Often, realistic life art is centred around white, non-disabled, cisgender bodies which can leave entire demographics feeling erased from history. I want to create art that reflects and celebrates all types of bodies, with a focus on transgender and queer identities.
Leo has hit the ground running, consistently creating bespoke images for My Genderation, helping to grow our socials and engage with our broad community. We are thrilled to have Leo as part of the team, who has worked above and beyond every month, to deliver new work. His images have also transferred well to our POD store, to help generate more income for our non-profit organisation.

Leo was able to hear the story of my business and he values which were important to me and then translate that into a new logo, website, artworks, and branding guidance. He listened to my needs all the way and communicated throughout. When I got to see the final article, it was exactly as I hoped for. Not only was he super professional and created a beautiful end result, he was thoughtful, easy to get along with, and great at communicating throughout the whole process.
