Jason Lee is a self taught artist who was born and raised in Darwin, Northern Territory.
Having grown up next to saltwater and learning his Gulumerrdjin (Larrakia) culture from his mother, Uncles, Aunties and brothers and sisters this sparked an interest in art and this interest was cultivated during his teenage years and further developed when he started learning the Larrakia language. Jason’s artistic influences come from his Larrakia ancestry and the Larrakia Language and cultural practices.
His art is a mix of contemporary and traditional styles. Jason has always been fascinated by images and how the world is represented through art.
The Northern Territory has some of the most colourful and vibrant native flora in Australia offering a variety of edible fruits, nuts, seeds and flowers exhibiting a myriad of colours. This eye-catching spectacle is evident as the seasons progress. The impressive colourful display transforms the landscape into a Northern Wonders palette of colours throughout the year.
