Taiwanese artist Chen-Dao Lee has created a world of violence, vengeance and a lot of semi-naked women. Lee introduces the viewers to a mysterious and erotic body of work, with his pop images reflecting as dark objects of desire on the viewers’ mind. These anime-like, twisted paintings depict a world where men are perverse pigs and women are fighting Amazons.
Lee’s characters are furious and cynic individuals who strive to survive in a world where fighting seems to be the only way of communicating. Expressing their emotions through violent and excessive reactions, the heroes fully embrace every single feeling that passes through their body.
