South Korean artist, Teyé was born in Daegu in 1985 and currently lives in Spain. His given name is Taejay Lee. After a decade working as a creative director in Advertising agencies, Teyé ventured to dedicate himself fully to chemical photography and alternative processes after receiving professional training at the Escola Grisart Internacional de Fotografia Barcelona.

Teyé mixes traditional oriental and occidental printing materials and techniques to create photographic art that awakens emotions. He uses various types of natural dyes and physical materials related to the narrative and theme that he incorporates in his final prints.
