Born in Korea in 1948, Charles Lee began showing an affinity for art at the young age of seven, ultimately demonstrating skill in many types of art, from pencil portraits to tranquil landscapeseach. Lee's ascension as a recognized artist began in high school where he won the gold medal in an international art competition in Seoul. Lee continued with his art education through college and by the age of 23 he was honored with his first one-man show.
Shortly after, in the 1970s, Lee exhibited in the Hong Kong and Tokyo group shows. The middle to latter part of the same decade brought Lee wider acclaim when he presented his second one-man show and had his works displayed at the Tae Yoon and Man Kang galleries in Seoul. Subsequently, during the 1980s, while employed at the Gaius Art Studio, many of his works were exported to America. Lee eventually moved to the United States in the early 1990s.
Lee's most recent compositions are paintings with a raised richly-textured finish, that utilize mixed media. They are a compelling combination of traditional and neo classic. In the execution of his designs Lee embraces oils, watercolors and acrylics. He also has a penchant for a bright and eye catching pallet (including gold foil), that demonstrates his keen sense of color; yet in spite of such vibrant imagery he presents his subjects in a calm reflective and almost ethereal way.
Working on canvas and paper, Lee reveals a knowledge and fascination with Roman, Greek and Egyptian architecture, as well as the human female form. Figures of traditional women are often time set against neo-classical backdrops such as palaces or mansions.
Columns are another element used frequently as Lee calls to mind memorable periods in ancient history. "I want people to be there….to be inside of this period in time…inside those beautiful buildings", he says.
Lee's paintings are regarded for the intricate level of detail that he infuses - a level of detail that is akin to the works of great masters like Michael Angelo, Renoir, Cezanne, Van Gough, and Da Vinci.
