As Andy Warhol used photo silkscreens to connect painting with the image-making technologies of the 1960s, Lee fuses digital techniques with traditional painting and sculptural processes to create totally contemporary works of art. Lee "humanizes" the digital sketches into lush paintings and vibrant sculptures. His work becomes a bridge between the digital and the physical.
Earlier generations of artists began their careers sketching on paper. Lee began by using Photoshop and other digital tools to sketch on his computer. His work combines the latest image making technologies with traditional artistic processes. He uses the airbrush and the paintbrush to create luminous paintings that evoke both the light of a computer screen and the bold coloration of color field painting.
