Vic Lee

Illustrator at Vic Lee

Vic Lee is a poet, an urban wordsmith who beautifies surfaces with typographic fantasticalisms. An ink loving, coffee supping, spoked wheel rider from London Town. He breaks bland with elaboration and modern elegance.

Using typography and frolicking lines, his art has been commissioned by the likes of Nike, Virgin Atlantic, Mercedes and The Famous Grouse to name a few. There is a romanticism to Vics work that encourages engagement and a smile in the mind.

His murals are freestyled and rarely planned out. His sweeping lines are testament to his commitment to his artform, Its a union of sorts between his pen and the surface he works to, an understanding of the visual harmony that can make a surface breathe and come alive.

Vic will be talking about The Pursuit of Happiness
