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





“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!



“Treasure Hunt”




“Broken Heart”



“Food Chain”



“Panic Room”



“I’ll Be Back”



“Maiden Voyage”









“Last Supper”






“The Little Match Girl”

    “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!

    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).

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
