posted 02 Sep 2021

Artist Lee Bae, best known for his charcoal paintings, has a solo exhibition at the art gallery Perrotin Hong Kong.

The "Paradigm of Charcoal" exhibit features a wide range of Lee's charcoal works, from the energetic "Untitled" series to the minimal "Brushstroke" series, showing how the artist explores the many hues of black that are possible through the material.

Born in Cheongdo, North Gyeongsang Province, in 1956, Lee studied fine arts at Hongik University, earning his bachelor's and master's degrees there. Lee moved to Paris in 1990 and now divides his time between Paris, Seoul and Cheongdo.
