OVERVIEW


Biography

Kangseung Lee deals with social and historical issues through his drawings. Lee takes the image of an event and erases the human body or draws a scene without the human form. Using photographs from 1970-80s that capture queer mens’ bodies in public or private places, he erases the figure from the original and expresses the absence of individuals that were affected by the HIV epidemic and social/political violence.
