Minjae Lee is a young South Korean artist whose work exudes a semi-disturbing inner tension that is tough to ignore, even if you feel that you’d like to. It draws you in with its powerful colors, halting imagery and a clever juxtaposition of beauty, innocence and fragility with an almost brash boldness.
The 23-year old artist is mainly self-taught and uses classic tools such as markers, pens, crayons and acrylics to create his illustrations. He has yet to break into commercial success, yet as his style develops and improves, his work will likely be seen in the future.[see_also]
