António Leal (Lisbon, 1976) holds an MFA from the Malmö Art Academy, a degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Lisbon and studied at Maumaus in Lisbon. Jesper Veileby (Karlstad, Sweden, 1985) holds an MFA and a BFA from the Malmö Art Academy. They are married and live and work in Malmö, Sweden.


They began collaborating in 2011 while still studying at the Malmö Art Academy and, as LealVeileby, they have developed projects that incorporate biographical elements and interweave storytelling with everyday life. Their multidisciplinary practice delves into human perception and systems of reality through the lenses of scientific speculation, esotericism and language.


They are finalists for the Altice Foundation’s Norberto Fernandes Award in the Art and Technology category (PT, 2024). Their most recent solo exhibitions include “Prophetic Juice” at Galleri BOX in Göteborg (SE, 2024) and “Magnetic Soap” at Krognoshuset in Lund (SE, 2023). Also noteworthy are the group exhibition “In the City Grows a Field” at Malmö Konsthall (SE, 2022), the digital space show at Bonniers Konsthall (2021) and videobrasil. online (2022), important solo exhibitions at Skånes konstförening in Malmö (SE, 2021, 2018) and at Espaço Campanhã in Porto (PT, 2018, 2013), work grants from the Swedish Arts Grants Committee (SE, 2021, 2020), they were also awarded the Malmö Art Museum’s Aase & Richard Björklunds Fond (SE, 2019) and the EDP/MAAT/Fuso Foundation Acquisition Prize (PT, 2017), and selected for the book Portuguese Emerging Art 2020 published by Emerge and the PLMJ Foundation (PT, 2020).
