About the speaker
Barry Lee is an Atlanta-based artist. Or, that’s the quickest way to phrase it. As a small child, his parents plopped him in front of the vivid colors and shapes of Jim Henson’s universe projected in pixels. He didn’t sit solo in front of the family television in his small North Carolina hometown. Lee bent over a tall stack of computer paper, practicing the images he saw on the screen. He eventually made his way west, landing in Atlanta. Over time, Lee developed a unique style combining the splashy colors of an early ‘90s childhood with soft contours and watercolor washes. He depicts an array of characters, spanning from pop culture icons like Robin Williams and Twin Peaks mainstays to intimate, personal narratives. Lee’s work has a friendly, approachable quality about it. This exudes through his animated color palette and gentle strokes. His clients have included TED, Mailchimp, Atlanta Magazine and more!
