Lee Chun-yi 李君毅
Born in 1965 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Chun-yi Lee moved to Hong Kong in 1970 and graduated from the Chinese University there, where he was deeply influended by his teacher Li Kuo-sung. Lee obtained his MFA from the Graduate Program of Fine Arts of Tunghai University in Taiwan, and he was recently awarded his PhD candidate in Chinese art history at the Arizona State University. The artist is clearly aware of his hybrid and transcultural experience, both in his art-critical outlook and in his art. Inspired by the ancient technique of Chinese ink-rubbing, he uses a small cork block to stamp the paper with variable pressure and in different directions; this creates apparently ordinary yet deconstructed landscapes.
