Horyon Lee: The Art of the Voyeur

Erotica // Tuesday, May 28, 2013
We cannot get over Horyon Lee's voyeuristic paintings.

His chosen subject matter has captured our erotica department's heart--focusing on the delicate, sensual movements of women moving and removing their undergarments, these paintings are uniquely sexy and innocent at the same time. Lee gives us all the freedom of a voyeur with all the agency of an art-lover. We cannot wait to see more from him.
