Chihoi Lee (b.1977, Hong Kong) has presented comics in local press and international anthologies since 1996. His work, often marked by a dreamy, poetic narration, investigates the intrigue around human relationships and inner emotions. Lee has exhibited in various comic festivals across Europe. His major comic books include Still Life, The Train, and Hijacking – Comic Hong Kong Literature. Lee has also co-edited the interview archival Long Long Road – 25 Years of Independent Comics in Hong Kong. His comics have been translated into French and Italian.
During his ACC Fellowship at Governors Island, Lee will continue to develop several series of drawings which will explore nostalgia and homesickness in different cultures.
