Shuh Lee creates with the boldness of Keith Haring mixed with the pure whimsy of a kid’s collage art project. Using unrefined patterns and a prism of bright pastels, Shuh has developed a multidisciplinary style that should overwhelm; instead, her work radiates a certain bliss, with a peculiar yet organic cohesion emerging from the chaos. Shuh is equally experimental with materials, working with everything from silk to clay. The magic all happens at her Melbourne-based home studio, where she designs and crafts every single one of her pieces by hand.
As one might expect, Shuh can’t help but extend her style to a variety of designs, using her artwork on everything from scarves and pillowcases to jewelry and hanging decor. Her linens are especially dazzling; it’s hard to imagine having a bad night’s sleep while wrapped up in Shuh’s Watawata quilt cover, which seems to have floated out of the Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”
Shuh artwork and objects ($25–$250) are available online. Custom work and wholesale is also available upon request.
