DS LEE 

(Dong Suk Lee)

Born in South Korea

Lives & works in New York, NY

 

DS LEE received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Her artistic practice reflects her earlier academic and professional background of architecture and urban design through careful consideration of non-structure and application of industrial materials. In addition, her deep interests in fashion have conjured up a profound dialogue with human and surrounding components of daily life, which she has developed and refined through several years of experimental studio practice.

 

Besides to her art-making practice, her creative activities are interdisciplinary as having expanded to art administration, directing, management and curatorial practices as she constantly gets a creative motivation through communication and involvement with people/organizations from diverse cultural backgrounds & industries.

 

Her work has shown for a number of prominent exhibitions at Amos Eno Gallery, Nexxt, Mikhail Zakin Gallery, Ray Gallery, Interstate Project, Luhring Augustine, A.I.R Gallery, Invisible Dog, Youme Haus, etc.
