Pearlyn Lii is an interdisciplinary artist and designer whose practice focuses on personhood, neomythology, and the divine feminine. Her work features fictional characters who experience the plight of the human experience in alternate realities. Drawing from science and fiction, her work manifests through embodied performances, augmented reality, and video installations. She often reinterprets existing female archetypes—drawing from mythology and magical realism—in response to a desire for a more regenerative, equitable future. 

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—and proud alum of ArtCenter College of Design, where she earned her BFA in Graphic Design with distinction.
