Lee Lanier is a contemporary narrative painter who lives in Boulder City, Nevada and runs a studio and gallery in Las Vegas, Nevada. His colorful paintings breathe new life into historical, literary, and mythological characters. Stylistically, he combines Rennaissance tableau with saturated renderings reminiscent of 20th Century advertising illustration.
His inspiration comes from old stories that have survived the long march of time. In his own words, he is "drawn to universal human themes such as life and death, temptation and faith, and creativity and industry." His end goal is to "create works of art that can be viewed multiple times while inspiring spirited conversations among groups of dissimilar viewers."
Lee dabbled in fine art his entire life but turned to painting in a serious manner in 2015. He has worked professionally as an animator for over 30 years, spending time at Walt Disney Studios, and DreamWorks.
