He teaches at the Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano and as a researcher arts and human rights projects: Oropéndola Arte y Conflicto and the Dimensión Virtual from the Museo Nacional de Memoria. Leyva has shown installations and sculptures that explore how a semiotic structure can be articulated from the conventions of matter. Leyva wants to understand the process of communication in art, which is why he proposes a collective construction of meaning through his work, which is currently relational.
