Upon visiting the Bodies Exhibition, New York based CGI artist and Digital Illustrator, Joon Lee had a revelatory experience. “All the intricate details of nervous and circulatory systems, mysterious organic shapes of muscles & organs, surprisingly vulnerable and fragile looking bones. I witnessed the unfathomable beauty that couldn’t be explained with human languages.” Joon was instantly inspired to create the anatomy he saw in 3D which has now turned into an ongoing anatomy series.
What I enjoy about Joon’s work is the color palettes he chooses for the anatomy. The face in particular has a light serene beauty brought about by his use of “skin-like colors instead of the red meaty textures on muscles.”
