Kwangho Lee has always enjoyed making things with his hands, which comes from living with his grandparents in the countryside when he was little. He remembers watching his grandfather making all sorts of tools out of seemingly everyday things found in and around the house and nearby woods. The house was full of his grandfather's handcrafted inventions, and this became the inspiration for Lee's future work as an artist and designer. In remembrance of his grandfather (who passed away in 2005), Kwangho Lee began to find, look and approach things in the way his grandfather would have done, giving new meaning and function to everyday objects and materials.

Kwangho Lee was born in 1981 and grew up in the outskirts of Seoul, Korea. He majored in Metal Art & Design at Hongik University, and graduated in February 2007. He currently lives and works in Seoul.
