To say Jake Lee is a man of many talents wouldn’t be an understatement or an overstatement, it would simply be accurate. Jake is a designer, curator, entrepreneur, and mixed media artist based in Indianapolis, Indiana.

This series “Sucker Punch” explores the world of mass media and the imagery it chooses to display. Jake constructs his work by using type, imagery and iconic images. He enjoys the process of building layers from a variety of different mediums such as collaging, drawing, painting, image transfers and silk screening on wood blocks. Jake says he tries to convey a narrative story to the viewer that illustrates his feelings and his struggle with how media and advertising are used to shape society’s concepts of beauty, life, and passion.

Jake also curates a gallery called The Attic in the Murphy Building in Fountain Square, Indianapolis. It is open to the public every First Friday during the IDADA Art Walks.

Jake also operates his own t-shirt venture called Made In The Square which harnesses the distinct attitude of Fountain Square, Indiana.

His work will be showing at Homespun September – October 2016.
