Lee Young Ji is a young promising artist who has been gaining traction with collectors through her labor-intensive drawing of trees. Her paintings of trees, full of artisan spirit drawn one brushstroke after another, have been recently introduced through Asia Top Gallery Hotel Art Fair anc multiple art fairs in Korea.

Viewers may feel the comfort of oriental paradise in her paintings, full of trees, birds, and everyday objects. This is probably the attractiveness of her paintings that enabled her to grab collectors’ attention.
