Pearlyn Lii

 

Pearlyn Lii is an artist, designer, and creative director from Hong Kong whose work examines narratives about identity through performances and installations. She crafts surreal stories and investigates archetypes—often merging physical and sensory experience with digital, typographic, and code-based media. Her narratives are often inspired by mythology, lore, and magical realism.

She is the founder of nonstudio, an art and design practice that investigates mythologies through transmedia. Her work has been recognized by Dezeen, Vogue Italia, Wallpaper*, Forbes, Art in America, and the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD). In 2020, Foundation invited her to be one of the first 24 artists to launch the 2.0 version of the platform.

She is an alumna of NEW INC’s Art+Code track, a cohort of artists supported by The New Museum’s partnership with Rhizome.
