Lee Ung-no

Lee Ung-no was one of the most prominent Asian painters of the 20th century. Having begun his career in Korea and Japan, he abandoned traditional art and shifted to abstraction, thus playing a pioneering role in the foundation of contemporary Korean art.

In 2007, a museum entirely devoted to his works was inaugurated in Daejeon (KR).
