Miki Leal’s practice is characterized by the use of irony, distancing from conventional painting, and the questioning of “isms”. His work reflects his personal iconography and explores a range of topics including architecture, cinema, travel, jazz music, and the camp aesthetic. Over the years, he developed sculptural ceramic pieces to move his painting into three-dimensional space.
Miki Leal has exhibited work at Track 16 Gallery, Los Angeles; County Hall Gallery, London; and CAC Málaga, Spain, among others.

Aslan Goisum tends to mine memory–collective and personal, political and cultural–for clues about colonial realities, how they have been endured and how they might be undone. Identities come into play in his work, as embodied effects of violence perpetrated or unfreedom suffered but also as possible openings, new beginnings. So far, his prime artistic tools have been the moving image, sculptural installation and various paper-based techniques.
Aslan Goisum has exhibited work at Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp; Stedeljik Museum, Amsterdam; and Kohta, Helsinki, among others.
