Lee Mok Yee

b. 1988, Malaysia

Mok Yee was born in Klang, Malaysia. Graduating from Middlesex University, London in Fine Art, he is a multi-disciplinary artist, with his artistic practice spanning visual arts, stage design, music composition, and percussion. His visual art revolves around installation, sculpture, and painting.
Mok Yee’s work is an exploration of the language and boundaries of different materials. Using ready-made objects, he attempts to interpret and reconstruct the characteristics and utility of the objects, incorporating his views of his own cultural and political background. In the pyramid series, the shapes and arrangement form a shifting, multi-dimensional surface, changing based on the environment and the viewers. In his landscape series, the artist tore apart the wood cord spontaneously, creating lines of different thicknesses, resembling borders on a map. Mok Yee’s wood cork series attempts to blur the line between organic and artificial processes, using artificial force to compress the wood cork by machines, and then tearing the material apart by hand in a more organic process. Mok Yee believes that art and society are interconnected, expressing that high consciousness and high connection with society are the most important aspect of being an artist.
With many accolades, Lee Mok Yee’s latest achievement was in November 2021 when he was awarded the prestigious Gold Award in the Established Artist Category for the 40th UOB Art Awards 2021. In 2022, he participated in the Rimbun Dahan Residency, further developing his craft. He has also been exhibited internationally in London, Korea, and Germany, in exhibitions such as ‘Folded Lines’ in Kuala Lumpur (2024), and ‘Material Matters’ in United Kingdom (2021), with his works being well received by collectors.
