Lee Ufan Biography and Wiki

Lee Ufan is a Korean minimalist painter, sculptor, and scholar who has been recognized by the Japanese government for “contributing to the development of contemporary art in Japan.” This artist’s art is anchored in an Eastern understanding of the nature of materials as well as modern European phenomenology, despite the fact that he has long been based in Japan.

Lee spent his early years working as an art critic, philosopher, and artist. In Japan, he got involved in the countercultural upheavals of the 1960s Anpo Movement. In the late 1960s, he rose to attention as one of the founders and theoretical leaders of the avant-garde Mono-ha (School of Thing) group.

Mono-Ha has been associated with the 1960s Arte Povera movement, which was Japan’s first contemporary art movement to receive international prominence. The Mono-Ha school of thought opposed Western conceptions of representation, preferring to focus on material and perceptual interactions rather than expression or intervention.

Lee’s sculptures, which combine distributed stone configurations with industrial materials such as steel plates, rubber sheets, and glass panes, recast the discrete item as a network of interactions based on parity between the observer, materials, and place. Each piece in his sculptural series Relatum is made up of one or more light-colored spherical stones and black, rectangular iron plates.
