Leroy Campbell has pursued his artistic vision for 20 years, seriously dedicating himself to creating art since 1984. He has an artistic style that is easily recognized due to the way he depicts the human form. A self-taught artist, he is influenced by his birthplace, Monk's Corner, South Carolina. Campbell revisits the rural South in his "Neckbone" series, inhabited by Joe-Neck bone, Joe Neck bone, Jr., and Grandma Corrie. His subjects, proud, God-fearing, and self-reliant, are the backbone of the African-American community.
