Film preview for the Il Lee: Ballpoint Abstraction exhibition opening on March 11, 2007 at the San Jose Museum of Art. The exhibtion closes on July 8, 2007.
Bursting with expressive energy, Il Lee's drawings and paintings produce the maximum impact with minimal materials. Using the unique medium he has cultivated since the 1980s—the humble ballpoint pen on paper, and more recently, canvas—Lee creates works that are abstract, yet express the dynamic, unbridled power of nature. Born in Seoul, Korea and educated at the prestigious Hong-Ik University in Seoul, Lee earned his MFA in painting from the Pratt Institute in New York. This is the Brooklyn-based artist's first major museum survey exhibition, and spans the past 25 years of his work.
