2023 Featured Artist
Lee created his first artwork in 2016 and reluctantly entered Blue Fringe for the first time. Winning People’s Choice Award and discovering the amazing Blue Fringe community inspired him to pursue art more seriously and he has entered every year since in multiple categories. He has been a committee member for five years. In his own life he has been deeply affected by the way artistic expression can aid mental health, addiction and personal issues and is fascinated with the redemptive, personal and political power of art. He has gone on to exhibit his work in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne and is currently studying Community Services with the goal of teaching art therapy.
With gratitude to the wonderful supporters and sponsors of Blue Fringe Arts.
The festival would not be possible without the support of many generous local people and businesses over the years. The Blue Mountains City Council has also been a long time supporter of the Festival and recognises the important cultural role the event plays in our community and in generating positive conversations around mental health.
