About Mason Lee James

Mason James Lee is of Chinese and Fijian heritage and is one of Fiji’s artist. Mason learnt art at a young age and is self-taught. Mason was part of the Oceania Centre for Arts and Culture at the University of the South Pacific where he has been resident since 1999 till 2007where he had worked on some of his technique and explored different mediums until he felt confident. Mason has been exhibiting his work since 2000 till today. His first Solo was in the year 2002 at the Oceania Centre for Arts and Culture. Lee attributes his predominantly red palette to the way "these colors represent the burning passion that I have within me to paint".

Mason enjoys art very much and often compares it to the revelation of the unseen world. The exploration of different techniques allows him to become more and more familiar with this world and dare to translate in color and patterns some tormented and heavily patterned seas. His paintings offer to the eyes of the viewer a journey through his rich symbolic imagination.
