In an immediate, bold and graphic style, Grace Lee invites their audience to look twice. Using repeated motifs of various instruments, portraits, and animals, Lee’s paintings recreate scenes seemingly pulled from a comic book or medieval manuscript. Taking inspiration from the British Museum’s collection, Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige, and the New Testament, Lee’s intricately detailed works continue to reveal new secrets.
Lee, born 1995, received their BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, London and their MA in Fine Art from the Slade School of Fine Art, London. They have exhibited at Mall Galleries, London; Albert House, London; and Piazza Martiri della Libertà, Chiari. They were awarded the Barto Dos Santos Memorial Award in 2021, as well as the NOA15 East of England Award and shortlisted for The Worshipful Company of Painters-Stainers Award in 2015.
Lee lives and works in London.
