Lee Wen’s friend Chan San-mu, also an artist, told the SCMP that “He was attacked before he had a chance to see what [the perpetrator] looked like”.

Lee had attended a forum at the university where he criticised the situation in the mainland and urged political change, making reference to Chen Guang.

In the early hours of Monday morning, Lee Wen shared on Facebook “Ghosts are real. You bleed but they don’t. You cannot see them but they are around.They can cause pain but do not feel pain….” He is due to return to Singapore today after exhibiting his ‘Yellow Man’ series at Art Basel.
