Kwangho Lee was born in 1981 and grew up in the outskirts of Seoul, Korea. Lee majored in metal art & design at Hongik University, and graduated in February 2007. He currently lives and works in Seoul. Lee has always enjoyed making things with his hands, which comes from living with his grandparents in the countryside when he was little. In remembrance of his grandfather (who passed away in 2005), Kwangho Lee began to find, look and approach things in the way his grandfather would have done; giving new meaning and function to everyday objects and materials.
