"A magician who breathes new life into masterpieces with digital technology" – The Korea Times The work of the South Korean artist, Lee Lee Nam, exists at a crossroads between tradition and modernity, east and west, authenticity and duplication. He often refers to art history and thereby creates a dialogue between media technology and its cultural basis. Lee Lee Nam lifts the barriers between cultures and time periods, and questions the way we deal with art. South Korean artist Lee Lee Nam (b.1969) creates digital and video works that connect traditional Asian art and European old master paintings with modern day images. His works create a fictitious world where dreams overlap reality.
