Minjae Lee is only 19 years old but his play with colours has gotten everyone’s attention. A painter and illustrator, he might not be making big bucks yet as a full-time artist but we’re pretty sure he soon will be.

The South Korean talent might not be able to speak English well at this point in time, but his work speaks for him with his perspective on the female face and form. Dark and edgy, his work is a cross between looking like a mess of graffiti inspired art, aggressive brushstrokes and idle sketching, yet it comes together seamlessly and provocatively.

Dramatic and emotional, the self-taught artist’s uses traditional mediums to create images embodying fragile tension that draws you in the more you look at each piece; each woman telling you their own story.
