Grant Leingang is a 28-year-old American Designer, Producer, Entrepreneur and President/CEO of BLVCK DIVMOND & BLVCK.
Born and raised in Lafayette, IN – from 14 -18 years of age, he attended Lafayette Jefferson High School and spent a majority of his childhood in advanced arts, starting at age 5. Grant’s primary focus is Art, Programming, Education, and helping Economic Development for Large and Small Cities.
At age 24, Grant was accepted into Harvard Universities Entrepreneurship Program & Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
During 2018, Grant designed, approved, and launched an art campaign that completely changed the corporate marketing world with the introduction of the first of its kind ad campaign that sought to showcase women’s strengths with a major focus on feminism.
The primary focus was on women’s strengths through a complicated year. 1 young man, and 1 young woman, shut down the entire news network for 25 days as they had to “re-establish” approvals of submissions due to controversy.
Grant’s remark on the shutdown was “Create what you love, do what you love, help what you love, and don’t let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do. Change the world, whether they like it or not.”
At age 27, Grant helped The G20 Summit’s Lantern Festival with Digital Organization, Field Planning, and 100% custom Deck design to obtain funding for the entire Summit’s outdoor festival for King Salman of Saudi Arabia.
During the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Grant went door-to-door personally asking for donations to help 200 Orphans.
At age 28, in December of 2020, Grant was accepted into the Las Vegas Presidents Chamber being one of the youngest members in the Chambers history.
Shortly after gaining a seat in the President’s Club, the BLVCK DIVMOND organization later announces the launch of an ERC-20 token inspired by Las Vegas. Created in 2018 and tagged ‘VEGAS Coin’ or ‘VEGAS’. The digital currency looks to create a positive impact and launches on April 15th, 2021 with 15,000,000.0 VEGAS Coins (or) 10% of the organization’s holdings into the local Las Vegas digital economy.
Arriving to almost 29 years of age, Grant created, designed and implemented an Ill***** clothing line called “ILLEST by BLVCK DIVMOND”. Publically sharing it to experiment and initiate neuroligical reactions to local audiences. Starting a “game” in Las Vegas, NV and ending it in Portland, OR, while including online participants – his goal was to initiate neuroligical/psychological triggers to discover local and international mental health issues to provide individuals who would not normally understand that they have mental health problems, discover them so it could be resolved.
Grant’s main art style takes a new perspective on Minimal Abstraction. He uses a combination of Symmetrical Geometric Designs implemented with accents of Urban Graffiti & Typography. Grant uses heavy contrast to display emotion, character, and simplifying that chaos can be beautiful in the eye of the beholder.
“The beauty of my work stands in its existence. We take thing’s that shouldn’t be, and make them be – because we can.”
– Grant Michael Leingang
