Prominent South Korean visual artist Lee Lee Nam made his debut in Qatar last night during the opening of an exhibition at the Katara Art Center.

Lee Nam is known for digitally reinterpreting traditional Korean ink painting masterpieces as well as European classical paintings into a contemporary new art form.

The exhibition has been brought to Doha by Korea-based ASAN Gallery and KAC with support from Korean Embassy and Korean Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA).

“I want to deliver real feeling to people through my visual art,” Lee Nam told Doha News.

Praising the exhibition, South Korean ambassador Heung–Kyeong Park said, “Lee Nam’s work gives life to the masterpiece. Mona Lisa is still Mona Lisa, but many have made developments. It’s about bringing new ideas from the old masterpieces.”

Speaking about future exhibitions at the KAC, CEO Tariq Al Jaidah told Doha News that Qatar is proud to feature unique art and new artists.

“We are trying to deliver a message. We have an open mind to other societies and culture. This is one among the many ways to show that.”
