Pearlyn Lii is an interdisciplinary artist and designer whose practice investigates personhood, neomythology, and the divine feminine. Her work narrates the plight of the human experience through fictional characters in alternate realities, reinterpreting the digital space as a form of modern kinmaking. Drawing from mythology, science, and fiction Lii grapples with pain, loss, and memory, particularly in matrilineage. Her work manifests through video game animation, augmented reality, AI, and embodied performances.

Lii is an alumna of NEW INC, a cohort of artists supported by The New Museum, and is a selectee of the Art+Code track in partnership with Rhizome. There, she founded nonstudio, an art and design practice that investigates mythologies through transmedia. Her work has been presented at New York Live Arts, New Art City, JO-HS, The New York Times, Google, and covered by Dezeen, Vogue Italia, Wallpaper*, Art in America, and Casa BRUTUS. Previously, she has worked with the Guggenheim Bilbao, Whitewall Magazine, and Maison Kitsuné.

In 2020, Foundation invited her to be one of the first 24 artists to launch the platform.

Most recently, she became a founding artist at Gemma, a digital platform uplifting female-identifying new media work founded by Lindsay Howard and Eileen Isagon Skyers.

She is a proud alumna of ArtCenter College of Design, where she earned a degree in Graphic Design with distinction.
