16 artworks / 23 exhibition

Lee Kuang-Yu was born in 1954 in Taiwan. In the early 1970, he entered the Department of Sculpture of the National College of Arts. Following graduation in 1975, he went to Spain to study western sculptural technique and theory. On returning to Taiwan, he taught at TNUA and NTUA, retiring in 2006 to devote himself to his work. Lee Kuang-Yu’s thinking unites modernist and traditional forms, so that abstract forms appear amid figurative pieces. His art marries eastern culture to artistic creation, producing forms full of a highly individual sculptural aesthetic. His work has previously been exhibited in Spain, Austria, Japan and Singapore. LEE Kuang-Yu also accepted an invitation to take part in the 'Open 18 International Exhibition of Sculptures and Installations', along with October's 'The Moment - Taiwanese Art Projects Exhibition' in New York in 2015. His works can be seen in the public
spaces or National Taiwan University Hospital MRT station, on Civic Boulevard, and at National Sun Yat-sen University in Kaohsiung. Within Taiwan, three major galleries have collected many of his works.

Thinker
Thinker was inspired by the Metteyya Buddha image of Eastern culture. With concise, light, unhurried but powerful line transition, Lee Kuang-Yu depicts the expression of a person deep in thought. The work also borrows the creative meaning of “between the real and the incorporeal” of eastern art, using a plate-shaped structure to form a spatial style in which real and unreal are intertwined.

Empty Procession
The style of the work Empty Procession was inspired by the kanzhoima of Tibetan Buddhism, having the image of “dancing in the air.” In this work, a piece-like structure formed by flowing lines similar to the lines of calligraphy is used to depict the kanzhoima dancing in the air with a joyful expression.
