Lee James Abbott
British multi-disciplined artist Lee James Abbott is best known for his graphic art and work within the film industry. He has created a variety of movie posters including the artwork for the film ‘Alien Ore’, a 40th anniversary short celebrating Ridley Scott’s iconic 'Alien'.
After spending his youth creating gig posters, Lee was introduced to the medium of serigraphy and later studied the print technique in London, UK. Lee’s first solo show this summer explored the themes of loneliness and isolation through his hand-printed, manipulated emotive photography and graphics.
This year, Lee completed his first art residency in Courtenay, BC with funding from Canada Council, escaping traditional boundaries by printing on challenging surfaces including glass, wood, and foil.
