Eric Jiaju Lee earned his Master of Fine Arts degree at Hunter College in New York City where he has been residing for nearly two decades. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Lee also works in Beijing, China where he has established a studio practice in recent years. Lee exhibits regularly both locally and abroad, with works belonging to international private and corporate collections. The recipient of numerous awards, Lee is a professor of fine arts, an independent curator and guest lecturer at museums and institutions in the greater New York area.
Lee is best known for his work as an Abstract Painter but in recent years has been embarking upon other avenues of artistic expression in various mediums ranging from Drawing, Collage, Photography, Sculpture, Video and Sound Art .
Lee's current series of drawings and collages involves the female nude drawn in sumi ink on various types of high quality rice paper and transparent paper that is then collaged together and arranged within different shapes of mat board cut-aways, beyond the conventional rectangular cutaway. Lee is in the process of compiling a large archive of drawings of a variety of models and figures which culminate in collaged pieces that are matted and framed, showcasing the individual model and figure.
