Leon Lim from "Work of Art: The Next Great Artist" is one of the artists competing in Season 2 of the Bravo reality competition series. He lives in New York City and is 31 years old .

Born in Kedah, Malaysia, Leon Lim ("Work of Art") has been profoundly and proudly deaf since birth. His first language was American Sign Language and as a child, he drew and painted incessantly, inspired by the colorful covers of music cassettes. Instinctively, his deafness has served as motivation to examine ways of telling a story through his artwork without speaking, reading, or writing. He built his world without the need to hear sound or music by living alone at 14.

After graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology and De Montfort University in the United Kingdom, Leon settled in New York City to explore his passion. Leon dabbles in a wide range of art forms, including painting, photography, multimedia, installations, and performance objects. His art has been exhibited in galleries, museums and major festivals including the Total Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, the CAFA Art Museum in Beijing, and the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

Recently, Leon's transformative portrait work of Julian Assange was featured in the 2010 Time Magazine's "Person of the Year" issue. Leon has worked tirelessly to make a name for himself by demonstrating the real meaning of being an artist without ability to hear. He seeks to explore the dispositions and aftereffects of creation, evolution and abstraction, working with the elements of fire, water and sunlight.
