Lee Ufan

Lee Ufan (*1936) is a Korean minimalist painter, sculptor artist, and academic. The art of Ufan, who has long been based in Japan, is rooted in an Eastern appreciation of the nature of materials and also in modern European phenomenology. He advocates a methodology of de-westernization and demodernization in both theory and practice as an antidote to the eurocentric thought of 1960s postwar Japanese society. His work was exhibited at major international museums such as the Guggenheim New York, the Tate Liverpool, the Kunstmuseum Bonn, the MoMA, and the Yokohama Museum of Art as well as at Biennales such as the documenta, the Bienal de São Paulo, and the Biennale di Venezia.
