Leah Tinari

is an American illustrator.

With a camera always at hand, Leah Tinari captures her family and friends amusing themselves through wild nights on the town or in everyday life. She chooses the snapshots others would discard for their awkwardness as the basis for her color-saturated, caricature-like paintings. Girls dancing with abandon or making funny faces, playfully suggestive bedroom scenes, and decked-out, limo-riding revelers sporting masks are typical subjects. “My paintings are snippets of time that capture moments and function as a visual diary to create my social realism, a documentation of 30-something contemporary lifestyle and behavior,” she explains. Tinari names David Hockney and Alice Neelamong artists she admires and finds inspiration in Elizabeth Peyton’s use of color and penchant for portraying her friends.
