Well known as “The Chicken Man”, Ernest Lee has made his work popular throughout South Carolina and the Eastern Seaboard. Ernest Lee is a native of South Carolina and is well known for his “Folk Art”. He has occupied the corner of Gervais Street and Harden Street in Columbia, South Carolina for many years, where his patrons have visited the part flea market, part wishing well, and “The Den”, to purchase the famed “Chicken Art”. Ernest is a self taught quasi-local legend in Columbia, a college town whose pride is the USC Gamecocks, helping keep his trademark “Chicken Paintings” in high demand. Over the years Ernest has thought of many opportunities and finally realized he can take his art from “Wood to Cotton”. “Painting is a privilege and a blessing”, he says. “I consider it the best job.”
