Leanne Bock (aka Le Riquiqui) is a visual artist, designer and illustrator.

b. Queensland, Australia, lived in London 2006–2013, Central America and México 2010–2011 & 2022, France 2013–2014, regional Australia and Sydney 2014–2017, Melbourne / Naarm 2002–2006, 2017–current.

My practice involves working with ordinary objects and themes of the everyday as a way to connect individual and collective realities. By means of research, writing and embodied play,  I build democratic visual languages which embrace existential absurdity and playfully pose abstract questions around constructed realities and contemporary mass culture.
