Leighton McIntosh, known professionally as 'Geckor' is a Scottish artist and designer. As a kid, Leighton had a strong fascination for drawing and reimagining cartoons. Fast forward the years and that passion has spiralled into the forms of acrylic painting, graphic design and animation.
Geckor's work explores techniques of geometric abstraction, distortion and transparency which result in sophisticated, yet fun bodies of work. The 'spiralled eyes' were originally used to portray bemusement in characters which heightened his warped designs and have now evolved into the signature detail of his work and original characters. Leighton's artwork and creativity has allowed him to collaborate with some well established brands, resulting in the release of limited edition merchandise and solo exhibitions. With a mixture of sharp lines and vibrant colours, Geckor creates a pop culture inspired world where anything goes.
