We would like to congratulate Lee Bul on winning the Noon Award at the 2014 Gwangju Biennale. The award is given to an established artist who has produced the most experimental and creative work that embodies the theme of this year’s biennale.
The 10th Gwangju Biennale, ‘Burning Down the House’, is on view through November 9th.
He received his education at the Joso School and at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Thanks to the spreading of his illustrations through the Internet, he started working for Zara. There, he says, he learnt about his trade, about regularity, and how to study styles of reference illustrators. A year later, he launched himself as a freelance artist, and since then he works for different brands, advertising agencies, and publishing companies.
