South Korean in ethnicity, born in Bogota, Colombia, and currently 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 during her youth before she moved to Ithaca, NY to receive a BFA in Painting at Cornell University. From 2015-2018, she completed a Master's Program in Fine Art at Georgia State University's Ernest G. Welch School of Design. After graduating, she currently serves as an art instructor at GSU. 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. Byrd Gallery (Augusta, GA), SOUP Experimental (Tallahassee, FL), A Different Path Gallery (Brockport, NY), Thomas Deans Fine Art Gallery (Atlanta, GA), Swan Coach House Gallery (Atlanta, GA), and Aqua Art Fair (Miami, FL).
