Lee Kwang-Ho, is a representative figure in realism paintings. He takes daily subject matters and takes the reproduction of their forms into a unique language of his own. Although realism seems like quite a laborious task and sometimes compulsive as well, through the pictorial depiction of Lee Kwang-Ho, we see the reconstructed reality fabricated by his intentions. Subjects that are expressed both vigorously and dramatically expose the desires of their subconscious, and also stimulates the tactility of those that behold them.

이광호 작가는 사실주의 회화의 대표적 인물 중 한 명으로 일상적인 소재를 형상의 재현을 넘어 자신만의 독창적인 언어로 해석하고 있다. 다분히 노동적이고 어찌 보면 강박적이기까지 한 사실성을 뛰어넘는 회화적 묘사를 통하여 작가는 자신의 의도 속에서 조작되고 재구성된 현실을 보여준다. 강열하고 드라마틱하게 표현된 대상들은 작가 내면의 욕망을 드러내고 바라보는 이의 촉감까지 자극한다.
