Sir Leslie Thornton

Humourist Artist

Leslie Thornton’s work is whimsical, invigorating, compelling and light hearted. With an abiding interest in geography and geo-politics, he looks at cities, landscapes, buildings and places in a unique way. Leslie takes what may seem mundane subjects and honours them with a tinge of facetiousness.

In his career spanning fifty years Leslie has had over forty solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group shows.
