May Days of (Mostly) People—Guest curator, Lee Vasu, selected the strong portrait, Tattoo Man by New York artist Taehyub Lee to start the month. Born in Romania, Lee Vasu is both an accomplished artist and an experienced curator. He has a Masters Degree in Arts Administration and Museum Science. Lee Vasu’s creations evoke the power of a passionate, meaningful, and mysterious iconography growing from his historical studies of Byzantine art of his native Romania. Filled with gold, silver, and copper pigments evoking mystical memories, though portraying sexy and deeply human figures, Vasu’s paintings gracefully blend sacred and profane images.
Five artworks are being retired in May, having been selected for three calendars: Native Spirit by Tai Lin;
