B. 1983, Placentia, CA, USA. Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, USA
Mike Lee is a New York based artist who conveys contemporary social attitudes and anxieties through simplified silhouettes of the human form. By avoiding detail and blurring identity, his iconic figures amplify the emotive undertones of his own biographical narratives. These stylized forms are universally relatable and deeply cathartic reflections of the artists own life.
Lee was born in 1983 in Placentia, CA, USA. He received his BFA in 2006 from Otis College of Art and Design, Los Angeles, CA, USA.
Lee’s work has been exhibited in galleries across Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo including exhibitions at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, California, USA, the Honolulu Museum of Art in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, and the Vincent Price Art Museum in Los Angeles, California, USA. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, USA.
