From 500 Felt Objects, Lee Schein

In this week’s edition of our series of ‘Creatives of the Week’ chosen from ARTS THREAD’s graduate portfolios, we take a look at the specialisms of visual communication and highlight the portfolio of Lee Schein, a recent graduate of Wizo Academy of Design, Israel.

Why we like Lee’s work: We like Lee’s mix of the prehistoric and raw materials against a modern aesthetic.

Tell us a bit about yourself, your background and inspirations:

I’m an illustrator and wearable art designer. I collaborate with fashion designers, stylists, and film makers. I’ve recently graduated from Wizo Academy of Design, Israel, where I majored in illustration and got my B.ED.des in Visual Communication.

My collaboration with fashion designer Sasson Kedem, was featured at Israel’s first fashion week show in Tel-Aviv, Israel, 2011, and other pieces I’ve created were published in magazines, collections, and in Lark Publication’s book “500 Felt Objects”.

Wild Realms, Lee Schein

Talk us through the pieces on your ARTS THREAD portfolio:

My final project, “Wild realms” is an anthropology work in which I’ve created a fictional civilization of warriors, an outcome of my interest in the connection between illustration and wearable art.

Inspired by real and fictional cultures: their fashion, customs and textile, I’ve created six 2 meter high figures which I printed using silk screen printing on plywood, and a wall of miscellaneous “remains”: dental clay models, handmade felt pieces, and a few pairs of feet made from a mixture of sawdust and mud. The project was displayed at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel.

Wild Realms, Lee Schein

What are you currently working on?

These days I’m an illustrator for one of UK fashion magazines, I’ve been participating in a local illustration group show – “bull’s head”, and preparing for another big show this fall – “Designers of the Future 5,” where my “realms” project will be displayed at. I’ve also been working with museums stores and selling my wearable art and jewelry.

How can people get in contact with you? What work are you looking for?

I would like to illustrate more for fashion magazines, design and illustrate shoes and collaborate with textile and fashion designers.
I’d love to meet fashion loving professionals from any side of the spectrum of creation. Just come say Hi at my site or on instagram @leeschein.
