CRYPTO ART – Begins presents Lawrence Lee
An artist with a long history in contemporary art, Lawrence Lee is among the original members of the crypto community.
His works of shamanic inspiration prove to be perfect for communicating the parallelism between the semantics of the Far West and the crypto universe: places of novelty, experimentation and mysticism.
WHO IS LAWRENCE LEE?
Lawrence Lee has been an artist for more than 50 years. Since the late 1970s he has dedicated himself to art full time and his works occupy the spaces of museums and private collections all over the world.
The experience with digital art is well rooted in his artistic career: in fact, in 1989, Lee created the first computer-generated illustrated book for children.
Today he is one of the most respected members of the crypto community, with his NFTs present on the major exchange platforms.
Lawrence Lee’s artistic production can be summarized in two strands: that of landscapes and that of portraits.
Landscapes are semi-abstract scenarios where color dominates as a determining element in the composition, deviating from the reproduction of reality.
The portraits, on the other hand, always have a totemic aspect, referring to the Native American shamanic tradition.
Lee’s entire production is strongly characterized by the western atmosphere that permeates the landscapes of Arizona where the artist was born and still lives today.
“CrossCronocron Man ” (2020) is an example of Lawrence Lee’s portrait style ported to the NFT format. The face of an old man with native features rendered thanks to masses of color that give the work a psychedelic aura.
The artist, on SuperRare, builds the story of a traveler around the image
that guides people on its path beyond time.
This universe of spirituality, universal wisdom and iconic characters gives us a powerful metaphor on the crypto universe which, like the Far West, is unexplored, inhabited by characters out of the ordinary and esoteric because they belong to the virtual sphere.
CURATOR ELEONORA BRIZI SAYS ABOUT LAWRENCE LEE
Eleonora Brizi, curator and founder of Breezy Art, who curated for The NFT Magazine the selection of the 50 artists featured in the book “Crypto Art Begins” writes about Lawrence Lee:
“Lawrence Lee sees blockchain as an important development as much as oil painting as an artistic and socially stimulating medium as much as the work of a specific group of modern art artists after Picasso’s return to Paris in 1900. New tools that extend the communicative ability of the artist. “
