My name is Joel Lee. I am 17 years old and I will have the pleasure of attending OCAD U this Fall. I developed a deep interest in the Arts at a young age. I began entering my work in competitions and was awarded for them but it wasn’t until I immigrated to Canada did I begin to explore who I was as an artist.
Canada’s art culture had equipped me with the knowledge to combine various art forms and techniques to create unique art pieces. I like to think that I am well diversified in the fine arts and my recent familiarization with computer generated art has only served to expand my skillset.
Whether my art is digital or more traditional, the subject matter of my pieces are often influenced by the issues we face as a society. My dream and aspiration as an artist is to be content with my work and to be able to support myself doing what I love.
OCAD U’s importance to me begins with the creative atmosphere formed by the students and staff but the quality that I am most fond of is that this institution is completely engulfed in the art community and has become a pillar for Toronto’s art culture. My occasional visits to OCAD U over the years has proven this to me. I always leave OCAD U inspired and more motivated to explore, experiment and create . I know OCAD U can mold me and pave the way for a successful future.
Joel.
