About me


Hi my name is Sang Won Lee.

I'm originally from South Korea, specialized in automotive exterior design. I've always admired great vehicles with great stories. 

I'm interested in not only cars but also other types of transportation such as planes, bicycle. From this passion, I get inspired. 

I'd like to see things in actual 3D. Therefore, I like to spend time modeling stuffs.
