Artist Name

David Lee

Born: 1970

Hometown: Singapore

Based in: Singapore

Drawing on his interest in both art and design, I Am Not David Lee’s practice regularly delves into the grey areas between the two disciplines. Much of the work he ​produces seeks to explore the untapped potential of familiar materials, encouraging them to behave in unfamiliar ways.

​This often requires ​disregarding conventional practice in art & design and ​introducing a dose of chaos into what are typically very structured processes. To the artist, experiment is an essential element in his creative process,and one that he relies on to transcend the limits of imagination.

I Am Not David Lee has established a career as an artist. ​He has also completed his solo exhibition, exhibited in global design shows and won international awards for his work.
