Part of my self–initated project The Value of an Image – deception and illusions
IL Lee is a Korean American contemporary artist. He was born in South Korea (1952) and has been living in America since the mid-1970s. Lee is best known for his ballpoint pen artwork; large-scale abstract imagery on paper and canvas. He also creates artwork in a similar vein utilizing acrylic and oil paint on canvas. Exhibitions of Il Lee’s artwork have been held in Seoul, Paris, and numerous cities around the United States. The New York Times has described Lee’s ballpoint artwork as ”deceptively casual; sweeping, rhythmical abstractions in blue.”
Il Lee’s artwork is represented in major museum and public collections: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Vilcek Foundation, San Jose Museum of Art, The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Kwachon, Korea. via

Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others is a collaboration by Julius von Bismarck and Julian Charrière. It has been performed and exhibited in Copenhagen, Venice, and Berlin. It engages the city as a robust spatial ecology of things, perceptions, movements and constant surprise.„Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others“ includes a pigeon trapping apparatus designed by the artists. This apparatus is installed in public space to catch and airbrush pigeons as they move through the city. The pigeons are painted, dressed with vibrant, nontoxic dyes, rendered and released back into the urban environments we all share and constitute by this sharing. While the paint is harmless to the health of the pigeons, it destabilizes the safety of our perceptions concerning the roles art, institutions, and urban species—including humans, when species meet in public space, the space of their rights and of our everyday lives.Painted pigeons meets each different city on its own material terms—as a horizon of different species and perceptions which co-constitute each other, and renegotiate those terms.
The textures, traces, lines and rhythms, whether in an urban context or in the nature, attract the eye of Switzerland based photographer Thierry Mugny, also known as tchegg TM: This abstract writing challenges and fascinates me: it is a whisper of a passage of time, the history of man kind with all its complexity.

A tree is just a tree. That is, until you put a canvas behind it, turning it into a living piece of art. That’s exactly what South Korean artist Myoung Ho Lee did and we couldn’t be happier with the result.
