BEAUTY: Painting--Arx Lee

Chinese artist Arx Lee creates fascinating narratives that feature a very colorful dream world. Puppets and children are nomads in what feels like a kind of post-apocalyptic place. Intriguing.

Lee has spoken about the young boy in his works, Bumi, and how this child is escaping the Floating City, a stand-in for this physical plane of existence. According to the artist, this is an expression of a very important Buddhist concept.
