Korean artist Jee Young Lee transforms studio into incredible scenes (No Photoshop!!!)

“Resurrection”

“Black Birds”

“My Chemical Romance

 

These images by Korean artist Jee Young Lee win the award for most elaborate self-portraits created without any digital manipulation. The artist spends several weeks at a time transforming her studio space into these incredible sets inspired by events from her life or Korean fables.

Jee Young Lee is the designer, performer, and photographer. She does everything! I do find it a bit sad though, that after all her hard work we can only experience these as flat images.

See lots more images of her work below!

    “Bursting with creativity” comes to mind, for me. So much so that I wonder if one can feel the pressure of it even just standing next to this remarkable artist! Wow!

  • www.artzila.com

    Love the creativity here.

  • Jessica Lee

    what an incredibly creative talent she has. It is absolutely mesmerizing

  • Anna Stoppa

    There’s a big difference between being inspired / making homages and copying. Unfortunately this is a copy of the work of Sandy Skoglund, the queen of staged daydreams (since the ’80).

Secret Studio Hidden Beneath Overpass by Designer Fernando Abellanas

Designer Fernando Abellanas has constructed a tiny studio beneath a busy overpass in Spain. Complete with movable walls, light furnishings and a hand crank that transports the structure along two metal rails, the micro-dwelling hangs high above the ground in a manner reminiscent to the kind of secret hideaway or fort one might have as a child.
