Jin-hyeok Lee (Tanjeong, Lee¡¯s artist name meaning ¡®Smooth Road¡¯) is a visual artist who specializes in illustration, calligraphy, and Asian brush painting with a studio located in Seoul, Korea. Drawing inspiration from his journey into spiritual awakening through Asian philosophy, martial arts, and meditation, he creates art with the intention of healing and a blessing for the purification of human soul. He envisions that the process of looking at artwork can provide an opportunity for the viewer to feel the healing energy, balance and relaxation.
While all of Lee's work is done with traditional calligraphic brushes and inks, he has consciously moved away from the conventional brushwork to more experimental forms of artistic expressions by drawing illustrated yoga and meditative postures, Qigong stances, and sacred symbols that project healing energy. His incredibly withdrawn yet powerful brush techniques reflect both magical flow of energy and force transmitted throughout human body.
Lee graduated from Hong-Ik university with a B.A. in Visual Communication Design. After graduation, he worked as an illustrator and art director for several organizations. Today he works out of ¡®Nature¡¯s Connect¡¯, a meditation center he runs in downtown Seoul. He also occasionally exhibits and sells his artwork as time allows.
