Lenny has over 15 years of experience in agencies and organizations across advertising, fine art, fashion, music, beauty, non-profit, and entertainment. From creating stop-motion animation advertisements for shows on Netflix to crafting social media influencer campaigns with Kim Petras for H&M, Lenny’s creations have proven to be highly effective and engaging. 

Lenny has worked with household names such as The Academy of Motion Pictures to bring his unique creative eye and social media strategy to the forefront. In 2021, Lenny produced a sold-out show with Jennifer Hudson and Christina Aguilera at The Forum (Los Angeles) with a 360-sound/visual stage for World AIDS Day. 

His diverse portfolio reflects his adaptability, albeit managing the creative aspects of an international multimillion-dollar campaign he has directed or mastering the creation of his conceptual still-life series “Vanity” which was featured at SXSW in 2022. 

Lenny’s work has been exhibited in galleries and purchased by art dealers globally. In 2022, his work from his "Day vs. Night Polaroid Juxtapositions" series was seen in print for the first time in a major museum at The Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s bookstore (LACMA). 

Lenny currently teaches individual or group classes in his welcoming home studio in Downtown Los Angeles or via Zoom, where he creates a curriculum based on individuals’ needs and inspires budding artists to explore their potential. He’s known on Instagram @Lenny__Gerard for tapping into the instant-film/Polaroid niche and posting new creations daily. 

Lenny's art doesn't stop in the studio, on social media, with campaigns, or in the classroom; it extends to galleries, online platforms, and into print publications as he reaches out daily and others spread the word about his art which speaks on issues and topics that he believes the world needs to be aware of. Lenny is dedicated to changing lives through art — to share his passion for the arts while bringing awareness to social justice issues. Lenny hopes to inspire others to create and think through art as he believes art is the ultimate form of healing, change, progress, and ultimately, humanity. 

Driven by an insatiable desire to create, Lenny is constantly conceptualizing new bodies of work that challenge conventions and ignite conversations. Lenny's artistic journey is a testament to his enduring commitment to the world of art and its power to inspire and connect us all.
