These Surreal Interiors Were Truly Created Sans Photoshop

New, 2 comments

In the Photoshopped era we live in, it's refreshing to feast your eyes on something completely surreal created without all the blurring, lassoing, and layering that come with the photo manipulator's toolset. Enter Korean artist Jee Young Lee, who creates arresting, dream-like scenes, often inspired by folktales, by hand, a process that can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to complete. With "Treasure Hunt," for example (above), Lee spent three months painting the walls and painstakingly crafting a bed of wire leaves to create an interior based on childhood memories. What might just as impressive—though less apparent, given the perspective of a lot of these scenes—is the fact that her studio is a mere 160 square feet. Starting next March, the OPIOM Gallery in Opio, France will present the first European exhibition of Lee's work, entitled Stage of Mind. Have a look at some of her best scenes below:
