Famed for her iconic paths, Hyun Joung Lee’s work reflects her childhood memories in South Korea, her studies in fine arts at Sejong University in Seoul, and her goldsmith training in Paris. She developed her own artistic language and techniques while working with traditional Korean materials.

Very cool illustration style – reminds me of scratchboards. I like that her subjects are ambiguous — could be cresting waves of water, could be sinuous ridges of land. She creates so much depth with her dramatic lighting.
