David Choong Lee's newest installation is composed of over 400 paintings and sculptures that pay homage to street people and their world. This collage of work wraps around the exhibiting gallery's walls, bringing the outdoors in, with a strong emphasis on the socio-political and economic issues that affect homelessness and the youth that people the streets. The installation is a merge of graffiti-styled form and bold portraiture, designed to "promote public discourse, challenging the notion of what is considered fine art."
Artist: David Choong Lee
