Jong Lee

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Jong Lee

United States

Jong Lee is an award-winning fine artist based in California specializing in portraits and figures.  Jong’s work represents his attempt to understand the individual psyche that is unique to each sitter as well as the universal human conditions that all of us experience as human beings.

Jong paints in oil, a medium that he feels is optimal for juxtaposing, mixing and arranging light and dark.  He favors realism in his paintings with strong emphasis in fundamentals in drawing, values and colors with modern sensibility.  His paintings invite his audiences to immerse themselves in another space and time, a dream-like experience that is as unique as each viewer’s life experience and personality.
