Billy Lee FRBS

“The syntax the sculpture employs may still be essentially Minimalist, but Lee has infused it with a subtle, anthropomorphic presence” –Trevor Richardson, Sculpture, September 1998, Vol.17., No7

Billy Lee was born of Chinese and Dutch parentage in Uitenhage, South Africa. As a child, his parents emigrated to England, where he later received his BFA, 1st class honours, from Birmingham College of Art and Design, and his MFA at the Royal College of Art, London (RCA). Upon graduation from the RCA, he received the prestigious award of Kennedy Scholar, to attend the Centre for Advanced Visual Studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and was later named a Fellow. He remains the only artist ever to receive the award of Kennedy Scholar. He received the Rodin Prize in the Fujisankei Biennale, Japan and the Giacomo Manzu prize in 7th HM international Exhibition. Lee was invited to participate in ‘Thinking Big: 21st Century British Sculpture’ at the Guggenheim in Venice’, the Beijing Art Biennale and also Cairo Biennale. Recently, he has been lecturing, writing, curating and exhibiting in China, creating large outdoor sculptures. In addition, he continues to exhibit in the USA, UK, Europe, and the Far East.
