Korean artist Lee Ufan initially studied (and wrote) poetry and philosophy. In 1969, he became the theoretician and leader of the Mono-ha movement in Japan, where he developed his artistic methods and motivations. As a lecturer at the Tama University in Tokyo, he started a career as a painter and a sculptor, and his reputation spread internationally. In his early minimalist paintings, he combines ground mineral pigment with animal-skin glue, a traditional technique in East-Asian silk painting. Many of his industrial-like sculptures consist of lightly colored round stones and dark, rectangular iron plates. This monograph brings together Lee's works across all genres, also supplying biographical documentation.
