I am quite simple-minded. The more colors someone uses in their art, the more I'm willing to look at them. This could be due to the fact that I am a very visual person, or because I have remained a child in my head who simply does not want to grow up.
The South Koreak artist Adehla Lee was born in Busan in 1983. She went on to earn her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Hongik University in Seoul and then her Master of Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York. So you can be damn sure that Adehla knows what she's doing.
She works up themes of friendship, almost surrealistic longings, and lonely moments in her paintings, and does so in such a visually engaging way that you just can't take your eyes off them. For Adehla's works seem pop and colorful in the first moment, only to subject the viewer afterwards with the full force of an intense melancholy.
