Some of the themes explored by this visionary artist include playful musicians, surreal landscapes and seascapes, mystical dreams, and fantastic visions.

Gee's interpretation of subject matter is unique, and inventive and illustrates his command of expression in form, color, and language. This African and Native American artist incorporates his own visionary images, symbols, and numerology into his art.

When asked how he learned about art, Gee replied, "I didn't. I still haven't learned. You just do it". The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel describes Gee's art as "tribal art-derived from Pop Culture and art magazines". In recent years, Gee has participated in dozens of shows including Soul of Black Folk and the Chicago Black Art Expo. Gee is influenced by Picasso, De Kooning, Francis Bacon, Jean Michel Basquiat, and David Salle.
