Quirky collages by Jake Lee challenge our perceptions of reality

South Korean artist, Jake Lee is the creator of these surreal, 1950s-inspired collages – both beautiful and bizarre in equal measure.

By carefully dissecting magazine images and illustrations, Lee has altered his perception of reality by escaping the rigid formality of our existence.

A manifestation of his own dreams and thoughts, Lee questions the theoretical constructs of life's philosophy by correlating each artwork from his social, political, and environmental experiences.

Appearing to work with opposites (warm and cool, calm and chaos), Lee interrogates the boundary between disarray and harmony, accompanied by vivid forms assisting in the making of dreamlike worlds, incomprehensible to be seen in reality yet redolent of our own environment.

Currently residing in Vancouver, Canada, you can see more of Lee's work at www.kdotclee.com and on Instagram.
