BTSCelebs: What inspired you to become an artist?
Minjae Lee: It was something that just happened really. I enjoyed seeing someones cartoons and manga drawings one day and then started doing it myself and eventually it developed into the style I have today.
How do you decide on a subject to paint/draw?
If it inspires, it inspires.
K-Pop is becoming very popular around the world, Do you have an idol crush?
I think many of them are very talented and very beautiful.
Do you think drawing a singer could help your art’s popularity reach new heights?
Of course it’s what people do to bring their art to new audiences and a new series I am working on will feature some recognizable faces from film, music etc
How long did it take you to complete your most difficult piece?
Some pieces have taken over a year, off and on.
What additional talents do you have besides art?
Have to leave a little for people to discover for themselves.
Have you created any of your pieces in foreign countries? If so, where?
Israel is where I just recently started a piece the size of a shipping container, but it was only 80% complete. It’s HUGE!!!
What do you predict for your future in art?
I do not predict, but I hope more people see my art and enjoy what they see.
