Pen Art by Il Lee


I was drawn to the moody abstract imagery in these pieces right away when I saw them, but each time I learned something new about them they became even cooler. These pieces by Il Lee are actually created with ballpoint pens! What's even crazier is the scale of the pieces - at first glance I thought it was pretty impressive to have managed to fill an average sized canvas, but these images are huge! That's an awful lot of scribbling. I'm in love with the inky blue tone and the soft, abstract forms.

These are incredible Sharalee. They remind me of schools of fish in the ocean, where it looks like a single moving form, but is made up of a million little bits.

Great to see you the other night at West Elm! :)

These canvases are incredible. The amount of energy put forth is an inspiration in itself.
