Lee J. Farkas

Lee Farkas is an American Fine Artist/Illustrator born in the western suburbs of Chicago. All his life he knew he was meant to draw and create, starting as soon as he could hold a pencil. Most of his early influences came from comics and action figures. This area of interest naturally developed into the figurative work he produces today.

Lee attended the American Academy of Art in Chicago where he earned a degree in figure drawing. This classical training was key in his ability to create believable and tangible imagery while maintaining the fantastical subject matter he holds so dearly. Lee works from home in his personal studio, tirelessly conceptualizing his next piece. Constantly working towards the creation of his own unique world and endlessly attempting to hone in on what exactly that entails.
