Bo Lee
Since 2009
Works in New York City United States of America

Bo Lee works with found and personally shot footage to recreate a theme that occurs in his mental consciousness. He visualizes on film or video, the tendencies of our human society and displays the underlying emotion that is embedded in our psychological system. Themes for his work range from religion, to environmental or emotional injustice as most of Bo Lee's work derives from the need to showcase the struggles that take place but the primary concern in all his work is the story. Whether the story is inherent within the visuals, or whether it lies as a back drop, the need for it is true in all his works. Favoring the raw texture of found footage, he embraces the technological advances in his craft but only to challenge the notion of what he can do. Currently he has taken curiosity with the possibilities of HTML and the Internet as a medium, with works such as "The Elephant" and "Art as a Commodity," but also have been working with his traditional video medium, collaborating with artist Ryan Anzures on a 3 channel Installation titled, "Death By a 1000 Frames." His work has shown world over from Helsinki, Bucharest, Seoul, NYC among others and have held a retrospective of his works in Prato, Italy and most recently showed at the Da Gallery in NYC as well as SCOPE ART FAIR in Basel, Switzerland. He currently travels between Seoul, New York and Philadelphia.
