Senssy Lee, a contemporary artist, began his creative journey in a rather unexpected context: the search for a profile photo for Fortnite. It was in 2017 or 2018 that he installed Photoshop, marking the beginning of his adventure in the world of design. However, his love for art is not limited to this recent period. From a young age, Lee has always been fascinated by drawing, a passion that has never left him.
Drawing has been a constant in Lee's life. He began, like many children, by drawing simplistic figures, such as representations of his mother as a potato. Over time, his style evolved, going through phases where he reproduced his favorite cartoon characters, then experimenting with realism. However, he found that the realistic drawings did not arouse the expected emotions in him. This brought him back to a more “childish” style, which he found more touching and more direct.
The year 2020 marked a turning point for Lee. He began painting his digital designs, finding immense joy in being able to physically touch and own his creations. Since then, he has painted daily, discovering each day the pleasure of seeing his works come to life under his brushes.
Lee's creative process typically begins with a sketch or drawing on an iPad, which he then reproduces on canvas. This method allows him to combine the advantages of digital, such as ease of modification and experimentation, with the charm and tangibility of traditional painting.
As a self-taught artist, Lee emphasizes that learning and practice are accessible to everyone. He encourages daily practice, stating that perseverance is the key to overcoming challenges and achieving success in the artistic field. For him, the biggest challenge remains to succeed in excelling in his art while generating an income from his works.
Senssy Lee stands out for her original approach and her atypical career path. His story is an inspiration to anyone looking to express their creativity, proving that with passion and commitment, the path to art is open to everyone.
