111 Minna Gallery proudly presents the most recent body of work by the incredibly prolific and multi-talented artist, David Choong Lee. This show will be David's third solo exhibition with 111 Minna and represents his constant growth and transition as an artist as his current practices and sculptural tendencies with which he builds from his paintings, are in stark contrast from the original paintings from his first solo exhibition, which were primarily sourced from San Francisco's local streets. David Choong Lee is a master creator of environments and builder of stylistic formulas comprised of everything he knows, meticulously composed in a way which expands the viewers mind and furthers ones perception of painting and art itself.
David's work has shown at many galleries in San Francisco such as 111 Minna gallery, Bucheon Gallery, Culture Cache Gallery, LEVI'S as well as many other galleries in the US and abroad, such as South Korea. He has self-published a number of art books- God Made Dirt, and Dirt Don't Hurt, 4 WORDS, DIRT, CONVERGENCE- and some of his books are distributed by Gingko Press and 2nd round productions to Europe and Asia.
He's been teaching figurative art at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco for last 10 years (from 1998), and he lives in downtown San Francisco with his wife.
