Drien Lee

The artist, Diren Lee, graduated as a textile art major and then worked as a principal designer at Jetoy for 6 years. She also designed ChooChoo, a famous character all over Asia. 

During the earlier stage of her artistic career, she put question marks on scars and fear of people’s past, using tattoo as a medium. Then more recent years, she applied endangered species, abandoned pets to stories and feelings of people on this little planet. She pulls out strong empathy between human beings and animal and brings in warm sympathy about what we’ve changed and what we’ve lost. 

Her art pieces are composed of crystal clear colors and lines. This very detailed descriptions eventually complete a fine harmony in distance .The eyes in her works speak for various stories of each object. Every eye has a number of lines and colors; the artistic expression is extremely realistic yet it simultaneously tells our dreams and hopes that do not exist in real lives. This irony remains in her lines and colors. The dreams and the reality greet each other in her canvas. And this consoles our souls and heals our wounds.
