Lledós is a Professor of painting at the Art Department of KCC-CUNY. Awards include a fellowship from The City University of New York in 2014-2015, and a PSC-CUNY Research Grant in 2002 and 2000. Lledós's work is in public collections, including General Electric, New York, NY, Elveiam Museum, Madison, WI, Museum of the City Hall, Barcelona, Spain, and The Consulate General of Spain, New York, NY.
For Lledós, painting is a rapprochement between the tangible and the abstract, the permanent and the transformative, the certain and the unexpected. His painting develops slowly towards an organic geometry which reflects on place, time and belonging.
