Young-se Lee

On the occasion of the Printemps Asiatique (Asia Week Paris), ACA project presents a selection of contemporary artists whose work concentrate on a specific material: paper, painting, ceramics, photography, textile and wood. Young-se Lee (b.1956, South Korea) is an artist based near Paris. Drawing on his heritage, both thematically and technically, he approaches nature through plants, water, rock, earth or bark. These are revealed in his work by using Hanji paper, a mulberry paper, through a textured and creative play.
