A new look at Disney characters in the works of a South Korean artist

A new look at Disney characters in the works of a South Korean artist
South Korean artist Hyungko Lee has an unconventional approach to depicting iconic cartoon characters. His series of works entitled "Homo Animatus" turns the usual idea of ​​cartoon characters upside down, immersing viewers in a world of anatomy and fantasy.
Born in 1969 in South Korea, Hyungko Lee had a rich imagination since childhood. After completing his education at Yale University in 2002, he returned to Seoul, where he continues to develop his creative path to this day.

The Homo Animatus series is a creative symbiosis of fantasy, science and art. Lee recreates the skeletons of famous animated characters, as if inviting the viewer to look behind the scenes of an imaginary world. He explores not only their form and structure, but also tries to convey the inner nature, essence and even soul.
It seems that every creation of the artist is an act of exposing what is hidden behind the usual images, behind the superficial contours of the characters. He encourages us to think about what is inside those who are perceived as simple, cartoon characters.

But Lee's work is not limited to simply creating sculptures. He also uses various studies in the fields of anatomy, biology and psychology to give his work additional significance. His work becomes a bridge between the worlds of science and art.
Hyungko Lee's approach to art is thought-provoking about the nature and role of animation in the modern world. His works become not only a subject of aesthetic admiration, but also a source of inspiration.
