With no formal education or training, South Korean artist, Jake Lee has stepped into creating his own dreamy dimensions of surrealism through collage. By carefully dissecting images from vintage magazines, ephemera and illustrations, reminiscent of the 1950's, Lee presents to the viewer his altered perception of reality. “A manifestation of my own dreams and thoughts, I question and explore my social, political, and environmental experiences”. Lee interrogates the boundary between disarray and harmony, accompanied by vivid forms assisting in the making of a dreamlike world, that is familiar, yet estranged.
Lee hopes to keep producing new original pieces to share his vision with others.
