Michael Lee is a British visual artist, living and working in London.
Having gained a first degree in Mathematics, he realised his passion for art was too great to ignore. He then completed a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at UCE, followed by a PGCE at Goldsmiths.
Michael taught as a full time art teacher before travelling Asia and training in oil painting. He returned to the UK, working as an art and photography teacher while studying a Masters Degree in Fine Art at Middlesex University.
Photography was always a passion and mainly served to inform Michael’s painting. However, since developing a unique technique for creating abstracted photographs in-camera, he only paints with his lens. Painting now serves to inform his photography.
Michael works solely as an artist now. He has exhibited widely across London, the UK and Europe. He is represented by galleries in the UK and Italy. More from Michael Lee
