The Red Arithmetic series was introduced to the British art market in 2006 at his graduation exhibition while studying at the Chelsea College of Art in London, where it was warmly received. The following year, in 2007, the series was introduced to the domestic art market, and since then, it has been praised by galleries and art lovers around the world. In particular, Uli Sigg, a "supercollector" of Asian art, who owns many of Lee's works, introduced him to the global art market as a representative Korean artist.
