Artist Biography:

Taehyub Lee is Korean artist based in New York. She studied at the National Academy of Art and Art student league in NY with Sharon Sprung.

Taehyub is a figurative and portrait artist who paints in the style of the old masters.  She works exclusively in oil and excels at capturing the expressions of her subjects.

Artist Statement:

I work with oil paints, putting layer upon layer, using only the paint knife for making form and defining light and dark at the first stage. I keep fixing the drawing until I finish my work.

While I am painting, I try to communicate with my models to feel their emotion. If I understand the models, my painting catches their face and figure better. It is the most wonderful thing in figurative painting.

My working process is kind of meditation and my paintings are a carefully observed negotiation

Below are Murray’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.


Artist Biography

Murray was born in Newport, Isle of Wight in 1957 where he enjoyed his school days and developed a love of drawing and painting very early on. After leaving school he became a furniture maker and gradually moved into design and manufacture. Murray took up painting seriously, though not full time in the early 1990’s and in 1996 did an A level Art and Design at the local college to gain experience of structured art learning. In 1997 Murray studied for a teaching qualification as he soon discovered a love of teaching people to draw and paint going on to become a lecturer in fine art at the Isle of Wight College. He went on to provide private tuition in his home studio, to demonstrate for art groups and now also tutors two art groups on the Island, The 5 Bells Art Group and the ‘John Finch Art Group’. Murray also leads for HF Holidays, running painting and drawing holidays all over Britain, France and Italy.

Murray’s first love is Landscape painting in Winsor and Newton’s ‘Artisan’ water-mixable oils and has written a book titled ‘Landscape Painting In ‘Artisan’ Water-Mixable Oils’ he is also a featured artist and product ambassador for Winsor and Newton and is a regular contributor of ‘How To’ paint articles for ‘Leisure Painter’ and the SAA’s ‘Paint’ magazines.

Murray regularly exhibits on the Isle of Wight and southern England and can be found painting in his studio in Totland Bay when not teaching away from home. He finds inspiration literally all around him on his beloved Isle of Wight, he says ”the next painting is always just around the corner and who knows, maybe one day a masterpiece”. Apart from ‘O’ and ‘A’ level art qualifications Murray is self taught and attributes his love of art and particularly landscape and seascape painting to his aunty Pat who was the first person to take him to a major art gallery, in this case the National Gallery in London and says that he was ‘blown away’ when viewing John Constable’s ‘Haywain’ and took art seriously from that point onward. Later in Murray’s career he was asked whether the Victorian artist Joseph Murray Ince RA was a relative or was it a coincidence, truth is he hadn’t heard of him but on checking the family history found that Joseph was indeed Murray’s four times great uncle and the name Murray had been passed down the line with Murray receiving it as his Christian name, however Murray maintains the view that anybody can learn to draw and paint!


Artist Statement

I have always loved the scenery of the great outdoors and living on a relatively small but beautiful Island is truly inspirational. Of course being surrounded by the sea is wonderful, with a never ending array of coastal views, harbour scenes and the ever changing mood of sea and sky there is truly no end of subject matter. We Islanders are also blessed with a huge diversity of landscape from ancient woodland and chalk down-land to salt marsh and everything in between. I endeavour to portray the natural world to the best of my ability hoping to give the viewer a sense of the beauty as I see it, both here on my Island home and in the world at large. I first saw John Constable’s ‘Haywain’ when I was just 11 years old, the sheer size and beauty of this painting and the portrayal of trees and sky in paint was awe inspiring to me and have loved both the landscape and landscape paintings ever since. I work mostly in oils as with this medium I seem to be able to convey at least a small amount of the affinity I have with the natural world whether it be landscape or seascape and am happiest and enthralled when creating at my easel.
