Leila Pinto

Artist Statement

Leila Pinto is a NYC and Hamptons based artist who works with oil and mixed media to create stunning paintings that explore themes around current events, culture, and nature. Inspired by her career on Wall Street as a Managing Director, she creates large abstract paintings about events that shaped the global economy like the financial crisis and Brexit, translating those emotions and impressions into colorful, expressive canvases. Her work, with a growing following among collectors and curators, reveals a unique artistic point of view and conveys an emotional component that is irresistible.

Her artistic aesthetic is also inspired by her many weekends and summers spent on eastern Long Island. She captures the beautiful light and essence of the ocean in her abstract seascapes. Through her ocean inspired paintings, she raises awareness and inspires action on important global issues like Climate Change. Leila is exploring new digital technologies in Art. She spoke on a panel in Davos on NFTs and the Metaverse; was featured in the first All-Female exhibition in Singapore and was named one of the top 5 NFT artists to watch, follow and invest in.

Her paintings have been included in prestigious juried art shows, shown in galleries, received awards, published, and displayed on a grand scale on the Jumbotron in Times Square, at the Oculus World Trade Center, in Hudson Yards and on a giant 24-foot-tall Monolith at SCOPE Art Fair during Art Basel Miami and at the Metaverse Summit in Monte Carlo.
