Leegan was born in Seoul, Korea. He began drawing and painting at a young age by himself. He

grew up moving from one metropolitan city to another—Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City;

and cultural diversity and experience of dynamic urban life became the major source of his artistic

inspiration, along with jazz, hiphop, and graffiti. In 2011, Leegan began to focus on painting

cityscapes—a visual manifestation of memories and emotions attached to certain places—and

experimented with various styles of realism and surrealism. In 2013, he moved to San Francisco to

attend Academy of Art University where he received his first formal art education. In 2014, Leegan

moved to Los Angeles and joined Leftbank Art, a corporation that specializes in producing and

printing artworks for clients such as Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, Z Gallery. He currently lives and

works as a freelance artist and art instructor in Bellingham, WA.
