Doah Lee is an interdisciplinary visual artist based in Philadelphia. She was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. She earned her MFA from University of Pennsylvania and her BFA with a concentration in Painting and Printmaking at the School of Art Institute of Chicago. In her work, she explores and exploits cultural symbols through repetition in a practice that mediates on cultural translation, immigration, otherness and femininity in focusing more specifically on issue of self-identification. She searches through the ways how children speak, listen, see, and draw and their relationships with the influencing points over a person’s identity under socio-political and cultural pressures. The work has been featured in various exhibitions in Virginia, Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Los Angeles and Seoul, South Korea. She has been a resident-artist at Vermont Studio Center and Cheltenham Center of the Art. She is a curator and member of an artist-run exhibition space, FJORD gallery and currently works as a visiting art critic and artist in residency at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
