LEE

(b. 1969)

 

South Korean artist Lee Lee Nam (b.1969) creates amalgamations of today's high-tech environment and traditional culture. With exceptional finesse, he creates mesmerizing digital and video works that juxtapose European old master paintings and traditional Asian art with modern day imagery. The artworks are overlaid and interwoven like a palimpsest, creating an image as fictitious as dreams overlapping reality.
