Born in 11 January 1989, Minjae Lee is a South Korean artist. He loves working with colours and even more colours in his paintings!
Minjae loves creating bold and intense images of beautiful ladies.
Minjae is mainly a self-taught artist who uses old-fashioned tools such as markers, pens, crayons and acrylics to create his artworks.
Viewers are easily drawn into his paintings despite their somewhat dark nature. The colours he use may not save the subjects in his paintings but they attract the attention of many.
What characterizes his work overall is drama. The ethereal females that populate most of his work exude a dark, organic tension, and it seems that even the brightest marker colors do not quite manage to save them from some sort of looming peril. Or are we, the viewers, in fact, the ones who are in danger? Whatever the case, we are drawn in, interacting on an emotional level, surprised, looking for something.
