Leonard Koren has led an enviably desultory life, first dropping out of college to paint murals with a group called the Los Angeles Fine Arts Squad and then eventually attending the UCLA Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Planning. Upon finishing school and realizing that he had neither the will nor the temperament to become an architect, Koren started making “bath art,” which grew out of an interest in unconventional bathing habits and spaces developed in college. This led him to found Wet: The Magazine of Gourmet Bathing in 1976, which he produced for nearly six years.
