Best described as "reflexive art gone rock and roll," Leikauf's masterful style and imagery incites multi-dimensional reverberations, as he likes to amp up his scenes to a dark and fervent crescendo.
Though his work takes him down the highway of history, Leikauf prefers not to use the passing lane.

Instead, he typically blends motifs from the 1950s with stylistic elements from the 60s, then infuses a shot of 80s spirit into the finished "loops" to place them smack dab in the 21st century. It's past, present and future fused into one, with each taking the whole in a different direction. (text fragment by Karl Baier, translation by Gordon Catlin, 2011)
