AMSET presents Michael Lee: Second Wind August 11 through October 23, 2011 in the Café Arts, featuring artwork from Michael Lee, owner of Michael Lee Advertising & Design, Inc.
Lee uses brush strokes and techniques that emulate the late 19th century Impressionist masters but with design elements of the commercial illustrators of the late 20th century. This exhibition will feature 20 of Lee’s most recent oil on canvas paintings.
Born in Port Arthur in 1946, Lee graduated from Bishop Byrne High School and attended Lamar University, graduating in 1968 with a Bachelor of Science degree in commercial art. He worked as an art director for local ad agencies from 1969 to 1973, until he began his own design studio. In 1978, Michael and his wife, Tanya, opened Michael Lee Advertising & Design, Inc., a full-service graphic design agency. Lee began to paint after a trip to France in 2003.
