Artist Leo Fitzpatrick is one of Downtown New York's favorite sons. People think of him as an actor, which he undeniably is. He is also one of New York City's most charismatic and romantic figures; a beloved Lower East Side fixture. Over the years Leo has become a creative force in the boites and haunts and galleries around town where his reputation as an artist goes unquestioned. Leo takes photographs and is a very adept collagist, and sometimes he draws and paints. Even though he is very busy, he's always generous with his talent.
