Born in 1969, Lee grew up in North London; he became interested in art after spending many hours watching his grandmother paint. His art education began with an Art Foundation Diploma and the Herts College and in 1999 he graduation with a BA (Hons) in art and Design from Hatfield University.
Lee draws his inspiration from all that is organic, natural and accidental, these fundamentals can be seen in his latest works where to some degree he has no control.
Lee works mainly with a basic palette of primary colours and he tries to maintain the purity of these colours throughout the painting process. Lee’s current works were created by applying lots of paint and gels mixed with water to create a very fluid uncontrollable effect.
