    Yun-yop Lee (b. 1968, Korea) painted banners at a movie theater for three years before being admitted into a college. He received a BFA in western painting from Suwon University in 1997 and has focused on producing woodcut prints that capture workers’ lives. Since 2006, when the Daechuri protests against the United States army base relocation happened, he has highlighted what happens in the field, calling himself a “dispatched artist.” He has held twelve solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions including Dispatch Me (Alternative Space Artforum Rhee, Bucheon, Korea, 2012), Layers and Spaces (MMCA, Gwacheon, Korea, 2017), Unforgettable Faces (Lee Han Yeol Memorial Museum, Seoul, 2019), and Print, Printmaking, Graphic Art (MMCA, Gwacheon, Korea, 2020).
