So Youn Lee is best known for her brightly colored dreamy paintings from using oil and acrylic paints to a glass like effect paintings with stickers and glitters sealed with layers of resin. She paints ingenuous genderless characters named ‘Mango’, highlighting innocence and optimism as a major theme. Influenced by popular cultures such as comic books and animated films, Lee presents a unique cartoon-like aesthetic. Interested in the relationship
between visual stimuli and emotions, So Youn Lee invariably evokes a sense of curiosity and nostalgia.
