Myungil Lee was born in 1960. He lives and works in Seoul, South Korea.

He had many Solo Exhibitions (in Switzerland, Seoul, Daegu, etc). He participated in Volta show Basel, Vienna fair, Art Chicago, Art Stage Singapore, etc.


He makes efforts to weave stories of symbiotic lives in his works, hoping they would reflect human existence, how those existences endure, how basic instincts are expressed, and how such essential elements coexist


He tries not to use figurative forms, so the abstractions can fuel viewers' curiosity and imagination.


He says he lives and works to find a path to understand the identities of human beings, including himself.
