Jae Hyo Lee has done some very interesting work in the fields of art and design and should be considered one of the emerging figures in East Asian sculpture. He began his career by getting a B.F.A. in Plastic Arts from Hong-ik University in Korea. In 1995 he received an award for Special Recognition at the Kongsan Art Festival, after which he was granted the Grand Prize Winner of Invited Young Artist sponsored by Hankook Ilbo in 1997. In 1998 he was the Grand Prize Winner of Osaka Triennial Winner of Young Artist of the Day, presented by the Japanese Ministry of Culture. He has sculptures on permanent display at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, as well as at Cornell University’s Herbert F. Johnson Museum among many other international sculptures.

His current work is done primarily out of pine trees. These sculptures create a very modern yet organic feel out of what would otherwise be dead wood. Very Cool.
