Leo Tecosky works at the intersection of cultural exchange, craft traditions and the pursuit of knowledge of self. He blends glass making techniques with the elements of hip hop. Recent exhibitions include site specific installations Graffiti and Ornament at the landmark Woodlands Cemetery in Philadelphia, and Semiotics II at the Gustavsberg Konsthall in Stockholm, Sweden as well as a solo show at Alma’s In Richmond, VA. Born in New Mexico, raised in Miami and currently in Brooklyn, his experience living in many places and traveling to others has helped shape Leo’s view of the world. Tecosky has worked in metal and glass shops since he could work and has an MFA. A father and husband, Leo works as a glass blower in Brooklyn and teaches Glass at Tyler School of Art and Architecture.
