Korean artist JeeYoung Lee has been creating incredible dream-like scenes in her Seoul studio since 2007.  The small space, measuring only 360 by 600 by 240 centimeters, explores identity, aging, Korean fables and dreams.

“My work, in essence, records my concerns and process of growing up,”  reads Lee’s artist statement. “It narrates and dramatizes my life stories.”
