One of the best kept secrets in the art world is emerging artist Leroy Roper Jr.  Mr. Roper and his brother Charles produce painted backgrounds in Dallas, Texas.  Leroy combines these backgrounds with models that he has body painted, and then proceeds to take wonderful fantasy photographs.  These photographs allow the viewer to enter another world...a dream world.

Mr. Roper Says that there is a need for fantasy in today's world, "Everything these days is too reality based."

Of his animalistic pieces, Mr. Roper states, "..if we put a human face on nature, we will be less likely to destroy the planet."

Leroy has been featured on an HBO Special, and has also worked on feature Films.   He does work for individuals, record companies, film and video production companies, as well as publications.
