Kang Wook Lee

He has bachelor degree majoring in Fine Art and Art studies at College of Art, Hong Ik University in Korea. He moved to London 5 years ago and studied MA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design. His series of art work “Invisible Space” is a study on microscopic world, for example, a very small world filled with cell and particle which is an imaginary space that can be a diminutive scale or grand scale depending on a point of view. Ultimately, the main theme of his work is a study on a new space which alters depending on a change in imaginary space and point of view. Recently, he researched on philosophy called Upanishad, a collection of philosophical texts which form the theoretical basis for Ancient Indian philosophy and religion. He establishes a link between Upanishad and motive for his art work. His recent works seem to develop towards abstract paintings which emphasis on a geometrical shape. His work has always been expressed through drawing and painting which projects the artist’s own gesture and it receives critics’ review as ‘paintings expressed with sensory vision’. His works are already possessed by many museums in Korea (Ho-Am Art Museum, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul Museum of Art), governmental institution (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and public institution (Samsung Medical Centre, Hyundai Motor Company, LS Industrial System Company, LG Fashion Company, Kyowon Group, KASCO etc) as well as private collectors.
