Artist Transforms a Single Room into a Series of Surreal Fantasy Worlds

Written by

 

JeeYoung Lee is a Korean artist currently living in Seoul. A recent graduate of Hongik University, Lee transforms her small studio space into a series of surreal fantasy worlds. None of the images below are photoshopped. Everything is built and created in the same small room that measures a modest 11.8′ x 13.5′ x 7.8′ (3.6m x 4.1m x 2.4m).

Each ‘set’ takes weeks, sometimes months to build. And in the midst of it all you will find the artist, carefully placed in each. The various worlds are inspired from dreams, visions and childhood memories. Others are interpretations of her environment and even childhood fables and tales.

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.
