Hannah K. Lee came from two churchgoing Korean immigrants who settled in Los Angeles in the 90’s. After dabbling in the liberal arts, she decided to pursue art in New York. Current topics of interest include Asian-American identity, mental states, womanhood, and religious baggage. Past topics have included consumerism (Shoes Over Bills), the nature of ambition (Everyone Else Is Younger and More Talented), and emotional experience (Close Encounters).
She currently freelances at the New York Times as an Art Director for Opinion.
Select zines and prints have been acquired by the libraries of the MoMA, Brooklyn Museum, Milwaukee Art Museum, The SF MoMA, and by The Library of Congress.
