Barret Lee's work revolves around his love for Graffiti, Surrealism and Cartoons. Those three worlds are molded into one modern escapism, using fantastical characters and floating landscapes to lend an utopian outlook on life. Lee works with color and space to look for intimate moments of reflection and retrospection, putting many paintings into one with a controlled sense of clutter. Representing the constant flood of information we receive each day. He also juxtaposes the clutter by making works that show isolation and distance. Using large negative space to create the idea of a fragmented memory or dream like escape.
