hello my name is thaniel ion lee, and im an artist from the states. im currently looking for a group or split show in europe. you can see my art at thanielionlee.com .

my artist statement is below

My work is about my life as a person with a disability, I use both humor and seriousness as away of dissecting and examining the world in which both you and I live in. I frequently cite and use history, my personal life and the experiences of others as a means of questioning and re-examining our societies view point on the concept that is normalcy.

I joined a while ago, never posted anything. This community is looking a bit lonely sooo....


2 moreCollapse )

The first two were taken earlier today with a Sony Cybershot P32 and edited with paintshop pro 7. The last one was also taken today with the same camera. I used photoshop for the last one though (obviously, it looks pretty fake).

I'm so glad Jenna made this community. [17 Aug 2004|06:23pm]


Some stuff I'm proud of, drawings here and there, poems writen from a year ago, some stuff done on the computer with pictures I've taken. Criticism would be good, so would be compliments. Heh. I'm trying to tweak some things and decide what goes in and out of my portfollio.
Here. Don't laugh.Collapse )
