About Jlee

Jlee-ism – an ART movement as a reflection into the various stages of life with its peaks and downfalls along with the expressions of ones inner feelings, characterized by 360 degrees artworks driven by the subconscious mind.

“My desire is to express a visual truth, a sense of freedom, endless creativity and the uniqueness of self.”

In Jlee 360, artworks can be appreciated and turned in 360 degrees, enhancing the spectators’ imagination to see things differently and showing options in life in an ever- changing process.

“My ART is not only about MYSELF, it is also about YOU”

My artworks witness the endless imaginary space and traces of life. I care about life and changes, the unconsciousness and unexplainable abilities between human beings and objects; these are the forces of my artistic creations. Through my free-forming, abstract and surrealistic brush strokes, I raise questions in life, and bring awareness of dilemmas that people encounter everyday. My ART allows me and the spectators to access with unconsciousness and intuition to respond at the moment and share their experiences. It is the abstract thought of the creator and spectator I find intriguing. “There is no RIGHT or WRONG in my ART, but there is YES or NO.”

Whether you agree with the ART or not, it is the individual perceiver that determines his or her own vision. There is no right or wrong way in viewing these paintings. I love to leave my paintings open for interpretations. My ART contains ideas that have symbolic meanings which are buried for the viewers to find. The more you look at my ART, the more images and meanings will come across.
