South Korean artist Jaedoo Lee has released a capsule of screen prints produced in collaboration with Bushwick Print Lab. Each of the seven prints are limited to an edition of 50 and consist of varying flat and textured shapes that the New York-based artist regularly employs across his surreal animations.

Lee’s work occupies a realm that floats between reality and the imagination, where ordinary shapes and scenes are digitized into euphoric playgrounds where DNA chains unwind out of a frog’s mouth or blocks of Korean script hover in space like a satellite in orbit. His process involves journaling through everyday photographs and an immeasurable amount of doodling, which Lee compiles onto his computer and further refines through his Cintiq tablet. Lee’s choice of characters and color palettes are noticeably inspired by his youth — from Studio Ghibli, Moebius and Katsuhiro Otomo to Akira Toriyama’s Dragonball.

Standouts in the release include Tyson and Blue Flower, a red and blue textured artwork that is open for interpretation — the former resembling a chain link, while the latter alluding to shapes found in nature. Each edition in the drop comes signed and numbered by the artist and is printed on Coventry Rag Vellum 290gsm paper.
