Ivan Lee is an up-and-coming artist, combining graffiti and other modern styles to tell his stories in his own special way.
Most of his pieces are multi-media works, with this one including aerosol, acrylic, and ink on canvas.
The somewhat muted palate is highlighted with metallic copper paint and vivid blue adorning the earrings and necklace.
Titled “Empowerment”, this piece truly speaks that message, from the determination in the eyes of subject, to the power in the turquoise.
This is just one example from an artist who shares his vision on canvas and in public, through his large indoor and outdoor murals gracing different buildings throughout New Mexico.
Enjoy our first piece from Ivan, and watch out for more from this young and determined artist!
