Independent of Feng Shui and other various décor-based philosophies, interior design is a process by which we create a specific ambiance or aesthetic in an allotted space. But when you have an artist using a studio apartment as an art platform, strategic interior design can transform a room into a canvas and furniture into the stuff of dreams. Just ask JeeYoung Lee.
As a recent graduate of Seoul’s Hongik University, she is already taking the art world by storm. Based in Korea, the budding artist is absolutely phenomenal at creating visually stunning dreamscapes out of her fairly ordinary studio. Lee’s art reflects her dreams, memories, ideas, and even elements of Korean folklore. The results, as you see for yourselves, are completely astounding.
Her meticulous attention to detail is uncanny. Examine the works closely and you’ll realize that every inch of what you’re seeing was hand crafted by the artist. There is no digital manipulation of the resulting images. There is no Photoshop. Lee and her imagination take center stage.
It’s hard to really grasp the amount of planning required for each finished project. My Chemical Romance reveals a hefty amount of bars and piping materials, and I’ll Be Back features an array of crafted – we don’t know actually – paper, maybe? It’s also hard not to notice Lee’s personal version of The Last Supper, which is uber cool if you ask us. And Gamer can give Nathan Sawaya (The Art of the Brick) a run for his money.
JeeYoung Lee is clearly talented. Her concepts are inarguably original and her work is obviously captivating. But it seems like she’s just getting started. With how much attention she is already gaining world wide, we can’t wait to see what she’ll come up with next. Something tells us we can expect great things, and if her current work is anything to go by, we won’t be disappointed.
