Lee is known for his use of everyday subject matter in his paintings, such as a child, a family, a bull, a crab and a lotus flower. His “Bull” series can be characterized by his use of simple yet bold lines that obviously helped the animal seem powerful and energetic. Experts say that the unique style of expression originates from the artist’s keen eye. Rumor has it that Lee was accused of stealing cows during his childhood.
