The life of Lee du Ploy has followed an interesting path, varied and challenging, from broke to self-made millionaire, from bike to Ferrari and leather of the sole, he has travelled far and wide to follow his two obsessions, Art & Psychology.

Growing up on a farm that borders the Kalahari Desert, his family tree in Africa stretches back almost four hundred years, Lee roamed with the bushmen and discovered beautiful and sacred paintings within the interior of caves. This act of discovery had a profound effect on him throughout his life and Africa remains his spiritual home.

Gaining a place in Paris at the prestigious Sorbonne, he decided, much to the disquiet of his parents, instead to opt for Amsterdam. Proving the theory that the path unknown and boldly taken, sometimes reaps the most value to ones journey through life.

Inspired by the paintings of Vincent van Gogh, he would combine his own obsessions of psychology and painting, aided significantly by the comprehensive research materials available at Exerpta Medica, a medical research facility. This would shape Lee's formative years.

London called thereafter and he opened a small gallery and private practice which would grow far and wide over the years. Here, he came into contact with the thinkers of the times, Michael Foot and Arthur Bremen, writers such as Ishuguro and Naipaul and singer/songwriter Sting. Creativity and comment explored through conversation and thus the natural pursuit of his own creative spirit through his studies, writings and paintings.

Lee du Ploy is an alternative medical practitioner licenced by the BCMA and an artist, currently living in Hong Kong. The Glass Facade is the first collective publication of his paintings.
