Jungwoong Lee Launch Event at OTTO
- 23 April 2015
Hanmi Gallery, in collaboration with OTTO and Flint PR, is very pleased to present an exhibition by Korean-born artist Jungwoong Lee (b. 1963). The exhibition will be held at OTTO, a luxury menswear boutique in Mayfair.
Jungwoong Lee is best known for the creation of his painting series, entitled ‘Brush.’ Using Korean rice paper (Hanji paper) and western oil paint, Lee’s hyper-realistic, reflexive works both celebrate and question the influences of traditional Korean and Chinese painting in contemporary Asian art.
Their surprising reality deploys a quizzical strategy in which the viewer initially believes the brush to be real, when it is in fact painted.
This exhibition will showcase a selection of works from his Brush series from 2008 to present day.
When: 23 April 2015
Where: OTTO, 66 Grosvenor Street, London, W1K 3JL, UK
