After selling off the store, Gordon became a stay-at-home father, and during his daily walks through the streets and alleys of his adopted city of Hamilton, Ontario, he became fascinated by the inner networks and webs of the city. His latent love of art and design soon emerged, and he was thus inspired to capture these emotions on canvas.
Gordon Leverton breaks down the city into component parts. Shadows, buildings and skylines, all become part of the same plane and transform into pieces of a puzzle. Using acrylic paint and soft pastel mediums, Leverton explores a theme common to the urban experience – how community connects us all. All of Leverton's pieces are Original and One-of-a-kind Art-no two pieces are alike or replicated. He welcomes Commissions - feel free to view his recent Commission pieces in the “Commission” page.
Leverton is known his “Sight Lines” series - using acrylics to look at the city from a bird’s eye view, connecting buildings through circuitry in a graphic style. “Certain Terms” examines our hot real estate market using wood, plastic and metal assemblage to form faux house facades.
Gordon’s work has appeared in numerous publications, broadcasts and journals and is widely collected. He is the co-founder of the West Hamilton Artist Tour (WHAT) - an artist run art show in his Hamilton community. He makes his home in Hamilton with his partner Nancy, two children and his cat Hugo - typically by his side in his home studio.
All of Gordon's work are original and one-of-a-kind art pieces. Prices are shown in Canadian dollars, includes HST with complimentary personalized shipping and delivery in GTHA. Quotes are provided for shipping within Canada and abroad.
