Len Jagoda is an award winning artist with over 34 awards (five of which are Best of Shows) at the national, regional and state levels. His work has been accepted to several exhibitions including five international exhibitions. While he was awarded a scholarship to the Cleveland Institute of Art, that opportunity was derailed by the draft. In 2007, over 30 years later, he returned to his passion. Lacking the formal education in art, he limited himself to working in drawing (pencil) and sculpture until he felt that he has established a reasonable foundation in form and values. The rest as they say, is history.
Because we recently discovered that some of his artwork has been pirated and images of it are being sold online in at least one foreign country, only a few images are being shown on this website. A complete gallery of Len's work can be seen on his personal website, www.backstretchstudio.com. This isolation makes it easier to manage the protection of his artwork images and track any downloads or attempts to download.
