Taehyub Lee | New York, NY
Taehyub Lee was born in Korea, 1984,Moved to New York in 2008 to be a portrait painter. Attended to ART STUDENT LEAGUE OF NEW YORK & NATIONAL ACADEMY SCHOOL.
I work with oil paints, putting layer upon layer.Using only the paint knife for making form and defining light and dark at the first stage. I keep fixing the drawing until I finish my work. While I am painting, I try to communicate with model to feel their emotion. If I understand the model, my painting catches their face and figure better. It is the most wonderful thing in figurative painting. My working process is kind of meditation and my paintings are a carefully observed negotiation.
