Young Lim Lee

Young Kim Lee was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. She recently received her Master of Fine Arts degree at the New York Academy of Art. She currently works and lives in Atlanta, US. Combining imaginary characters and real-life issues, Young creates a unique world of her own that is at once fantastic and real, simultaneously familiar and strange. She often uses childlike elements and approaches. She says, “I like to let the childlike-self inside me be free to play around with images and ideas swirling within my imagination. The childlike mindset helps me to expand upon the meaning of an object and view the world in more fluid, unusual ways.”
