Hyesu Lee

“I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. I would be proud to say I’m fresh off the boat although I'm not as fresh as I used to be anymore! I’ve been in Brooklyn, New York for ten years now, going about my life as an illustrator, artist, muralist, and educator. My art has always been driven by a curiosity around how people connect. I was very shy growing up, so I never knew how best to communicate with those around me. But drawing people – observing them and learning about them – that’s my way of connecting. Art, after all, has no language barrier.”
