Minjae Lee features iconic women in his upcoming work
Minjae Lee is originally from Seoul, Korea and this upbringing has dramatically influenced the art that he creates.
LOS ANGELES, CA.- Minjae Lee is a mostly self-taught artist who uses seemingly old-fashioned tools, such as markers, pens, crayons, and acrylics, to create art that focuses on ethereal women. His newest works will focus on iconic women that range in celebrity from actresses to singers to models. The chosen women to be featured in this series of artwork reflect both his Korean and worldwide influences.

Minjae Lee is originally from Seoul, Korea and this upbringing has dramatically influenced the art that he creates. His Korean roots have not been forgotten in his latest project. Korean stars, actress Bae Doona and singer Sora Lee will grace his upcoming artwork.

Recognizable celebrities of glamour, such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Elizabeth Taylor will also be featured in Minjae’s forthcoming work. However, these latest pieces will portray these Hollywood starlets like never before, in true Minjae style. In addition, Canadian Cover Girl Jessica Stram, Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova, and Victoria’s Secret’s own Chanel Iman will be captured in Minjae’s newest drawings.

Also to be spotlighted in this upcoming series of artwork are Japanese actress Yū Aoi, Italian model Monica Bellucci, Chinese singer Zhou Xun, American actress Devon Aoki, and Frieda Pinto, star of the Academy Award-winning film Slum Dog Millionaire. Another exciting addition to this list of outstanding and iconic women is acclaimed Chinese singer, Wong Faye.

Many of Minjae’s past works have included ethereal female forms that are highly expressive and focus on human emotion, the blending of cultures, and the concept of the soul. These new pieces aim to continue in Minjae’s signature style while portraying these iconic starlets.
