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 to name a few—and cultural diversity and experience of dynamic urban life became the major source of his artistic inspiration, along with jazz, hiphop, and graffiti.

Leegan often shows his artwork at Arcadia Contemporary Gallery.
I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say ‘he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.
