    Water-based latex paint / Site-specific installation

Born in Guangzhou in 1948, Bing Lee grew up in Hong Kong and then moved to New York in the late 1970s, where he has lived and worked ever since. Pictodiary is his most significant ongoing artwork, which first began as an experimental, spontaneous attempt that has developed into his signature mode of artistic expression. In 1990, the artist established Bing Lee Studio; he has installed numerous site-specific public art projects worldwide, including in the Canal Street subway station in New York City. Over the years, he has also taken part in many art collectives, including the still-active Hong Kong–New York art collective Tomato Grey (along with other Hong Kong artists such as Samson Young, Pak Sheung Chun, Annysa Ng, among others), the Epoxy Art Group, the Godzilla-Asian American Arts Network, and the Visual Art Society in Hong Kong (most notably Gaylord Chan and Chu Hing Wah, among others).
