Musings on art and life.
I first came across the art of Minjae Lee a few weeks ago on Facebook, I fell instantly in love. Do you know when you feel that deep wrenching in your belly, and a big smile spreads across your face, because something has made you so deeply happy, just by existing? That’s how I felt.
Art like this is appealing on so many levels; it’s highly skilled portraiture, for a start, then there’s the beautiful use of colour and line to create an additional layer of geometric patterning that enhances the natural, simple beauty of the sitter, and finally, the details and repetition of shapes are worked in to the layers that draw you in and keep you gazing. If I were to own one of these prints, I would fear being reduced to a drooling, staring simpleton.. Okay, maybe that’s a bit too dramatic, but I would certainly grin like an idiot every time my eye passed over something like this, if it were hanging on my wall.
Each portrait brings something new and exciting, and flicking through the artists online portfolio is a wonder of colour and skill. Treat yourself here.
