Biography

South Korean in ethnicity, born in Bogota, Colombia, and living in Atlanta, Nuni Lee is a visual artist who embodies complexity. Nuni immigrated to the United States from Seoul, Korea with her family when she was ten years old. She lived in Alpharetta, Georgia throughout middle school and high school and later received a BFA in Painting from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. In 2018, she graduated from the Ernest G. Welch School of Art and Design at Georgia State University with an MFA degree, where she currently teaches a drawing course. Her work revolves around a central figure, Good Girl, who is the reflection of the artist in an infantile form. She attempts to weave together her past, present, and future by layering her dreams, memories, and everyday life. Nuni is the recipient of the 2017 Joseph Perrin Award and the Chandler Award at the Welch School of Art & Design. Nuni has exhibited at venues including the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse (Miami, FL), Olive Tjaden Gallery (Ithaca, NY), Welch School Gallery (Atlanta, GA), Callanwolde Gallery (Atlanta, GA), Mary S.
