Barret's work encompasses the characters he has been illustrating since childhood and subject matters he has expanded upon since graduating from MCAD in 2016. Drawing from his biggest inspirations: surrealism, graffiti and cartoons, Lee utilizes a combination of acrylics, spray paint and occasional collage to express whimsical themes throughout his work. Personifying fantastical worlds that encourage the viewer to escape from the chaos of reality.
