Lee Jin Woo produces his works using Korean Hanji paper fixed on linen which he then mixes with volcanic ash for a result that is at the boundary between painting and sculpture. Largely inspired by the Dansaekhwa movement initiated by Park Seo-bo, his works are both a spiritual undertaking and a natural process. They are the product of a repetitive and meditative routine where a large part is given to the random reactions of the materials.

Part of the "Seoul-Paris-Seoul"exhibition at the Cernuschi museum in Paris in 2015, Lee Jinwoo also participated in the Holland Paper Biennale at the Rijswijk Museum in 2008. Besides, his work was the subject of solo shows at Galerie Maria Lund in Paris and at HT Gallery in Beijing.
