Philip Lee is a multidisciplinary artist working in portraiture, exploring both traditional and non-traditional representations of people. 

Based in Sheffied at S1 Artspace, his work currently revolves around a research project called Emotional Archive, which aims to explore portraiture through emotional psychology, and create an archive of human emotional experience through socially engaged artworks.

As well as emotional psychology, Lee has also explored portraiture through psychological theories in architecture, semiotics, spoken word, and abstract group mark making; along with more traditional practices such as painting, drawing, and photography. It’s his passion for portraiture and research which drives his practice, along with his interest in engaging with people through art.
