Douglas Lee est un touche à tout qui manie à merveille ses 3 disciplines de prédilection : le graphisme, l’illustration et la photographie. Celui qui s’auto-proclame « enfant des années 80 » applique son style rétro et flashy aussi bien à des illustrations qu’à de courts films d’animation pour des clients aussi prestigieux que British Airways, MTV, ou encore Coca-Cola… Né à Los Angeles et vivant actuellement à Berlin, on reconnaît tout de suite son originalité grâce à sa technique d’aérographie.
Douglas Lee, grew up in Los Angeles, before moving to New York and now Berlin. After having studied graphic design for 18 months, received a degree in applied arts, and having begun a film course, he ended up deciding that studying really wasn’t his thing. So he taught himself graphic design, illustration and photography, three disciplines he considered were closely linked and which allow him to control all stages of his work.
A child of the 1980s, he admits the decade still profoundly inspires him, hence his retro, flashy and hyperrealist style. Douglas’s originality lies in his technique of achieving an airbrushed style with a computer.
