Born in China, Timothy Hon Hung Lee now lives and works in the UK. Combining a love of Chinese history (especially the Qing and Tang dynasties) with a profound knowledge of western art, his work is a dichotomy of cultures. His pictures of flowing concubines, delicate still (yet definingly ‘unstill’) lifes of flowers and grimly obscured ecclesiastical figures have a spontaneous verve and rare virtuosity. Timothy’s work is mainly ink on paper, an unforgiving medium which makes his work all the more remarkable.
