Leon Rainbow studied at the Art Institute of Philadelphia as an Animation Arts major. Influenced by the graffiti of New York City in the 1980s, Rainbow has combined a fine arts education with a deep understanding of urban expression to create profound, attention-grabbing work. Relocations to San Jose and the New York suburbs took him further from his graffiti influences, but allowed him to focus on developing his work.

He has created murals for both The Urban Word Café and Café Ole in Trenton, and has also worked with various local organizations. Café Ole was the location of his first solo exhibit, Aerosol Illusions, which opened in January 2000. Rainbow is bringing his work into the digital age, doing multimedia design and studying Computer Graphics at Mercer County Community College.
