Lee is a self-taught artist who began drawing in detail from a very young age. He has shown internationally and exhibited in the “Dismaland galleries” curated by Banksy.
Lee paints at a large scale, isolating a subject within a broader landscape. Choosing an abandoned structure, vehicle or derelict building Lee provokes a mood of unease and disturbance through the combination of its isolation, the detail in its rendition and the strong play of light.
Lee says he hopes to achieve a sense of drama by “presenting a familiar image yet placing it in an intimate and moody setting. A narrative is very important – but intentionally never fully explained. I like to leave it for the viewer to come up with their own interpretation.”
Lee will be exhibiting with Hybrid in 2020.
