Haekang LEE
(b.1989, Korean)
Haekang LEE paints ambiguous imagery through spray and oil painting. Although the two materials seem physical and stylistically incompatible, each represents different cultures that Lee personally connects with. Although the artist is more familiar with graffiti works, he maintains his curiosity towards the popular method of oil painting, which can be applied slowly and has the ability to be edited. Thus, combining the two makes for an unpredictable artistic matrimony. The artist calls his technique ‘Morphing’, which he defines as transferring one animated object to another while maintaining separate physical characteristics.

Haekang Lee was born in Korea in 1989. He received his BA in Digital Media Design from Hong-ik University in 2016. His works have been featured in many local and international shows including galleries and museums such as Gallery 2 (Seoul), Uhjjuhdah Gallery (Seoul), Ecorock Gallery (Seoul), Open Space Bae (Busan), Gallery Suho (Seoul), Purmoe Art Space (Pattaya, Thailand), War Memorial Museum (Seoul), and The Roxy Theater (Hollywood, USA).

My painting is about ambiguous things in my own irregular way using spray paints and oil colors. The materials are incompatible and each stands for different cultures. I am more familiar with spray that needs to be done fast while most other artists are working with oil which can be applied slowly and easily editable. It is always unpredictable and attractive for me to work with oil and spray at the same time. It is “Morphing” which transfers one animated object to another naturally and the state in between still has previous object’s feature and also looks alike the other which I've been trying to reproducing on the canvas.
