“Pretty Dictators Vs. Pretty Leaders” by Ha Lee, illustrating Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi, President Obama, North Korean dictator Kim Jungil, Osama Bin Laden and more at SB D Gallery in East Village, New York City, 2011.
“Pretty Dictators Vs. Pretty Leaders” by Ha Lee will be presented at SB D Gallery from April 30th till May 20, 2011.
Ha Lee, former editorial cartoonist in Korea now based in Texas as a fine artist, portraits his belief in humanism through this sampling of dictators and leaders around the world with his paradoxic method. Lee believes that no human being is born as a dictator but only raised as one.
The arts are combination of digital and analog process, created first digitally and then printed on canvas to be hand-sewn to result in 3 dimensional effect. Each work is 30″ x 40″ big. Crossing over those two contrary environments, digital and analog, Lee tries to illustrate the embalance and dissonance of ideologies in life. Rather humaine than political voice of Ha Lee is embedded with each piece, the dictator of Lybya Muammar Gadhafi, President Obama, Osama Bin Laden, President Lee, North Korean dictator Jung Il Kim and so on.
As one last ‘pretty’ personal comment, let’s not forget about THE PRETTIEST DICTATOR, that no one may overpower… The Mother Nature… (all our prayers and thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by this horrific disaster…)
