Moments by Jonathan Jay Lee. Illustration. 2015. 

Jonathan Jay Lee is a Taiwanese-American artist based in Hong Kong. Lee’s surreal, figurative illustrations stemmed from his love for comics, visual story telling and pop culture. Using the energetic, neon scenery of urban Hong Kong as a backdrop, Moments exudes a strong sense of nostalgia and explores the raw feelings of hope, desire and longing within the exhilarating city.  

An award winning illustrator and graduate from Parsons School of Design, Lee’s clients included Marvel Comics, Lamborghini, Urban Decay, Lee Kum Kee, Ho Lee Fook and HSBC. He received an MFA from the City University of Hong Kong. He is currently a Professor of Illustration and Sequential Art at Savannah College of Art and Design in Hong Kong.
