Lawrence Lee, a professional artist with over 40 years of experience, is releasing his Tia Mariposa I piece of art on KnownOrigin on the 18th of March.
Lawrence Lee is famous for his iconic shamanistic images as well as his children’s book: “The Mirror,” which is the first ever children’s book to be created entirely on a computer in color.
About forty years ago, Lawrence Lee created a series of works depicting abstracted young women with heart-shaped faces and squash-blossom hairdos.
Tia Mariposa I ("Tia" means "aunt", "mariposa" means "butterfly") is a revisited imagery of the series. The artist stripped out parts of the original image and replaced them: some with graded fills and some with subtle animation.
This artwork is an embodiment of dramatic mystery and calmness. Looking at it, you really feel the magical spirit. Do not miss the drop!
