So Jin draws a lot of her inspiration when she is in an unconscious dream state, and also by observing the behavior of mental patients. She works primarily with ink, acrylic paint, and etching. Through observing people’s abnormal behavior, So Jin Lee creates the dreamy world for these imperfect beings, which makes her work ‘disturbingly cute’.
