Digital Artist Mike Lee is set to open his first solo exhibition today at the Arsham/Fieg gallery New York. After a successful international debut in a group show with the Amala Gallery in Tokyo last November, Mike Lee is set to bring his Digital Figures, which appear to levitate within a void, to the New York Gallery. An art series that revolves around an exploration of the female figure, Mike Lee’s “Besties” exhibit emphasises equality, social change and female empowerment. “In light of all women coming together to speak out, it’s about time their voices are being heard loud and clear,” reads a statement form Lee. “Besties” will be comprised of 5 new oil paintings that are continuing on the artist’s exploration of light and shadow through portrayal of his bubbly featureless characters, this time with accent on portraying female figures. These more complex works are an introduction of sorts to his newest body of work that he will be revealing later this month with Over The Influence gallery during Art Basel week in Hong Kong.
