Conrad Leach

.




The first time i saw Conrad's works it was during the last Legend of the motorcycles in Half Moon Bay, Cal. where had been invited. This guy is really an unbelievable arist, i invite you to take a look on hi paintings and if you're going to London take time to find him.
I ask Conrad to give the Southsiders a brief story on him, so enjoy.
