Korean artist Jee Young Lee creates elaborate scenes resembling surreal worlds inside her tiny studio in Seoul. Lee uses no photo manipulation to create her images, and her setting is the same small studio measuring a modest 11.8 feet by 13.5 feet by 7.8 feet. Using cheap materials such as styrofoam, cardboard and paint, Lee transforms her workspace into fantastic dreamlands. They are inspired by either her personal life or old Korean fables and they each have their own backstory. Each set takes weeks, sometimes months to build.

One of the most promising in the Korean art scene and a winner of numerous awards including the 2012 Sovereign Art Prize, Lee’s work will be featured at an upcoming solo exhibition entitled Stage of Mind, at the Opiom Gallery in Opio, France from February 14 – March 15, 2014. This will be her first European exhibition.
