Leong is an artist, former architect, sculptor, and furniture maker. His highly intricate and inspiring one-of-a-kind wood boxes have been enthusiastically acquired and are in numerous museum collections. Often inspired by ancient or legendary civilizations, Leong’s work displays a flamboyant sense of shape, surprise and presentation.
The MFA in Applied Craft and Design is a joint degree program offered by PNCA and Oregon College of Art and Craft. The lecture is part of the College’s Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture series.
