The Asian FUSION
Justin Lee series of works bring a different understanding of today’s Singapore society and lifestyle with a blend of east and west cultures. Justin also seeks to record everyday lifestyle into visual art based on his cultural, and its surrounding by doubting questions appearances. He believes that art play an important part in helping people to grow and to see the important role play and awareness of themselves. His current works reflect on how text influences and controls the users in our daily lifestyle. His works also reflect on words and images from the mass media like signage, billboards and consumer products which control our thoughts and expression. We talked to the artist about work and life.
