Francisco Leiro grew up in the northern region of Spain, an area steeped in centuries of religious traditions and history. He now lives and works in New York and continues to spend part of the year in his native country in Pontevedra. Well known and respected for his sculptures carved in wood and stone, Leiro has received numerous public commissions. His works are also in museum collections in Spain, Portugal, Japan, the Netherlands, and in the United States; and have been exhibited in solo and group shows at venues throughout the Iberian Peninsula, in France, Italy, Germany, Japan, Australia, countries in South America, and a number of times at Marlborough Gallery in New York City.
