I’ve recently stumbled upon the work of Jae-Hyo Lee and I was enchanted by it, so I thought to share my findings with you.
Jae-Hyo Lee is a south korean artist that uses discarded wood to create beautiful sculptures. He transforms branches and trunks into amazing objects, by cutting and passing them into flames to give them a certain color.
The fact that I like the most is that his art still keeps a certain amount of the greateness of nature in it. It inspires you and gives you that fresh feeling even just looking at it. And it almost talks about that “hey, you too are beautiful” thing, given that the pieces he uses are those that nobody finds right for their needs.
Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did, and if you hear about an exhibition of his close to where you are, go for it!
