Juxtapoz Magazine – Mike Lee is in “No Man’s Land”

The increase of the world-wide-web and accessibility to common facts presented me an perception to the enormous catastrophes as effectively as the discrepancies of the media’s encapsulation of reality.”

His solo show, No Man’s Land, on check out at 50 percent Gallery in NYC, feels assured and delberate in his new focus on surface and story. It is really a quiet nod to conflicts in lifestyle and in politics, also an being familiar with that humanity has shifted about the program of the previous a few decades. Lee is up for the problem of the second. —Evan Pricco
