1980" sunny boy series"
Shoko LEE bade farewell to Japan in 1972. She began a new life and artistic career and became a Malaysian citizen after marrying LEE Kian Seng. Her art corresponds to the different phases of her life: from publishing Sunny Boy in 1980, to "My Diary" series from 1980 onwards, which includes the “Soul-Dragon Horse (1989-2006) series, and more recently, her travel journeys such as the India Nepal pilgrimage in 2008. Shoko finds her inspiration in nature and subject matters of everyday life. Her vivid imagination has transformed ordinary objects and animals into cheerful individuals bursting with exuberance.
