Ha Gyung Lee (also known as NAKI) is a Korean born illustrator who graduated from Art Center College of Design with a BFA in illustration. She specializes in both traditional and digital mediums, creating complex - but elegant - line based artwork. Her pieces combine themes of mysticism inspired by anime and Japanese culture with an air of solemnity, arranged into striking compositions often accentuated with plants from the memories of her grandmother’s garden. Ha Gyung (NAKI)’s compositions are all mostly inspired by her character’s lores and she creates a powerful lore through illustrations.
