Lee Wen is a contemporary Singapore artist who is well-known for his work in performance art. His performances are deeply engaged in the social and political complexities of the region. This is exemplified in perhaps his most famous series, "Journey of a Yellow Man", in which he painted his body with yellow paint, a symbolic reference to his ethnic identity.

In May, iPRECIATION is presenting a solo exhibition of Lee Wen's works at Art Basel Hong Kong 2014. This exhibition will feature some of Lee Wen's most important works, including selected photographs from his 'Journey of a Yellow Man series, 'Splash!', 'Strange Fruit', acrylic on canvas body prints from 'Anthropometry Revision', as well as recent works including selected drawings and 'Yellow on Yellow: Dreamboat', which is especially made for this exhibition. Most of the photographs have been reprinted as museum-quality, fine art prints for this exhibition.

Lee Wen's 'Ping Pong Go-Round', a donut-shaped ping pong table, will be exhibited at Encounters, which is a curated sector featuring 17 ambitious, large-scale installation works.
