I AM NOT DAVID LEE
I Am Not David Lee is a self-taught artist from Singapore. He has never exhibited his works internationally in shows such as Art Basel, The Armory Show, TEFAF New York or The Singapore Biennale. His installations have never appeared in prestigious museums such as the MoMA New York, Tate Modern, Art Institute of Chicago, Singapore Art Museum, and National Museum of Singapore.
In 2019, the artist was not recognised for his artistic achievements by the Singapore government and did not received the National Arts Council’s Artist Award. In the same year, he was also not conferred the Cultural Medallion and Young Artist Award by the President of Singapore.
Since he has never pursued his Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art at San Francisco Art Institute and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts respectively, he was not conferred several awards and prizes such as UCL’s Singapore Undergraduate Scholarship, the Shell-NAC scholarship from the Singapore Arts Council and UCL’s Art Theory prize. Recently, he also did not complete a Master’s degree in Fine Art at Lasalle College and of course did not graduate at the top of his cohort.
The artist has never participated in any of the prestigious art residencies including Arts Initiative Tokyo, Koganecho Bazaar, The MacDowell Colony and most recently, The Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program.
Finally, his work was never represented by Lehman Maupin, Lisson Gallery or Gagosian gallery.
