Austin Lee

Austin Lee (b. 1983, Las Vegas, USA) received his MFA in Painting from Yale School of Art and BFA from Tyler School of Art and Architecture of Temple University. He is known for his playful, airbrushed acrylic works. He merges abstraction and figuration, humour and pathos in his exuberantly expressive and utterly contemporary paintings and sculptures. True to the age in which he works, his paintings begin as iPad sketches, and he uses 3D printers for some of his sculptures. Lee looks at and transforms the world into a highly-charged, visually and sensorily contemporary representation of itself, filled with insecurities, uncertainty, stop-and-go reality, enthusiasm, and apathy.

The artist currently lives and works in New York.
