b. 1956, lives and works in Manila

Lee personifies the fluxus of artistic activity in Manila. He is a local icon whose persona is a remarkable blend of artist, musician, patron, connoisseur, collector, promoter, pimp, and punk, while remaining oblivious to the tentacular market controls of the artworld. He maintains a Buddhist generosity balanced only by his bohemian rhapsody in punk dressing. He has appeared on T.V. shows and numerous magazines and periodicals. His style has influenced a number of artists, painters, musicians and celebrities yet he stubbornly insists on being “underground.” He has shown in Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and the U.S. and regularly exhibits at the Finale Art File since the 80’s
