Il Lee is featured in Ballpoint Art by Trent Morse, published by Laurence King, London.
“In many ways, Lee is a godfather of ballpoint art. Along with Alighiero Boetti and Jan Fabre, he was one of the first artists to dedicate years of his life to intense study of ballpoint as an art-making device…. And even though Lee has been working with ballpoint for well over three decades, he is nowhere near finished experimenting with the medium. ‘My aim is to always pursue new ideas and find something that can be expressed through ballpoint pen lines,’ he says. ‘There is a lot more work to be done.'”
