Born in the US in 1973, Beirut-based artist and designer Lee Frederix has a hybrid background in Architecture, Fine Arts, and Urbanism. Outside of academia, he is the founder of HQ, an open studio for art and design in the heart of Beirut’s Mar Mikhael Cultural District. His artwork focuses primarily on three-dimensional media, including assemblage, sculpture and installation, and reveals the artist’s sensual treatment of materials and their subtle juxtapositions. Lee’s most recent work (both academic and artistic) investigates urban transgressions, practices within the public realm that defy both conventions of social behavior and municipal regulations in contemporary Beirut.
