HAK SUL LEE

Korea-born artist Hak Sul Lee studied at Kwandong University in Korea and Queens College, CUNY, in New York where he majored in art history. Mr. Lee is represented by 798 Art Zone in Beijing. Mr. Lee started as a figurative sculptor. In recent years, he has been producing kinetic sculptures and interactive installations. Mr. Lee’s public art has been seen at the Riverside Park South in Manhattan, NY, relating directly to the city, as he explains: “The theme of ‘flux’ suits New York City well, with its distinctive history as a melting pot that receives diverse populations and their perspectives. My sculptures are meant to embody the city and the dreams of people moving forward on their own terms. The spherical forms incorporate aspects of a ship, an airplane, a fish, a bird… These reflect the city’s half-mechanical, half-organic nature where people’s lives move along one wind gust at a time.” On weekends, Mr. Lee mentors emerging artists at The Art Students League of NY where he teaches Metal Sculpture.
