Sasa Bogojev about Rhys Lee's work.
Lee’s works are infused with the animated graphic presence of the cartoon, bordering on grotesque fantasy and the macabre. Each stroke is fast, nervous and spontaneous, qualities that reflect the urgency and exuberance so particular to graffiti, a medium he explored intensely during the 1990s.
