Shalini Ganendra Fine Art



b.1968 Malaysia


Zac Lee’s fluid strokes study sublime behaviors and relationships, presenting ‘trace evidence’ of cultural, societal and personal instincts and interactions. Objects and forms are metaphors for individual and community, often showing contemporary applications of traditional folklore and national iconography.


With a strong training in Chinese brush and traditional painting genres, Lee embraces experimentation in his growing contemporary practise, which includes painting, photography, silk screening and digital. He continues to engage with realism, abstraction, language and illustration to present psychological puzzles and make elegant social commentary.
