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 presented at New York Live Arts, New Art City, JO-HS, Nous Tous Gallery, and covered by Dezeen, Vogue Italia, Wallpaper*, Forbes, Art in America, Casa BRUTUS, and Art She Says. In 2020, Foundation invited her to be one of the first 24 artists to launch the platform. Previously, she has worked with the Guggenheim Bilbao, Fashion for Good, Whitewall Magazine, and Maison Kitsuné.

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 a degree in Graphic Design with distinction.
