Von Leadfoot Sign Painting London


Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Leadfoot spent the majority of his life immersed in L.A.’s renowned hot rod and vintage motorcycle culture. As a custom car and hot rod enthusiast, and builder by trade, he developed a respect for these vehicles, and more importantly an eye for their simplistic detail. His love of cars and bikes, combined with a keen eye for their balance and symmetry was a driving force that compelled him to focus more on the finishing notes in a build and begin his career as a painter. After spending a few years abroad in London, England, honing the nearly forgotten craft of sign writing, he took his skills on the road as he painted his way around America. In his home-built and hand painted ’57 Ford F100 he racked up over 12,000 miles whilst painting his way from coast to coast, through 33 States.


He’s since been christened the Patron Saint of Paint, an American sign painter & pinstriper extraordinaire, capable of transforming soulless objects into divine pieces of functional, commercial art. Currently located back in London, he specializes in traditional free-hand pinstriping, sign painting, gilding, & design. Using distinct, one off, hand drawn designs and custom mixed colors, along with his time honored and well practiced skill, he can ensure a truly stand alone piece. Whether you want some pinstriping on your hot rod, a mural painted on a brick wall 50 feet overhead, or your entire shop front designed, lettered & gilded; no piece is too large or too small for the Patron Saint of Paint to take on. North South East or West, his travels will bring his skill to you.
