A Korean artist who uses Korean females as his focus, Ho-Ryon Lee has a very unique method of creating his art that involves combining traditional painting tools and techniques with modern digital photo editing software.
Ho-Ryon Lee’s process to create his visually stunning and mesmerizing works of erotic beauty include first taking several photos of the models in various poses and compiling them together in an overlapping fashion in Photoshop. This creates a blur-like effect that almost looks as if the models are moving in a dreamlike state.
After compiling the photos in Photoshop, he then paints using oil colors on the canvas over the photos (similar to rotoscoping) so that his work looks more like an actual painting then just a series of photos. It’s an interesting technique that is rarely seen.
The images are provocative, erotic, and visually pleasing. Ho-Ryon Lee plays on the idea of voyeurism and the excitement of seeing what is hidden, an object of sexual desire and seduction.
Ho-Ryon Lee is currently finishing his BA in Photography at the London College of Communication in the UK.
