Pierre Leichner

Pierre Leichner has changed career from a thirty-year as an academic psychiatrist to be an artist. He obtained his BA from Emily Carr University, Vancouver in 2007. Early works reflected his view of the artist as an observer and commentator on society. He obtained Masters in Fine Arts from Concordia University in 2011. Since then, his practice has shifted towards environmental and socially engaged work. He is a member of the Art Is Land Network environmental artists collective and the Gallery Gachet artists collective. He is on the board of the Community Arts Council of Vancouver.
