Born in Seoul, South Korea, Bo Lee is a contemporary artist, using video, drawing and found objects to explore various themes. His videos often implement a collection of rapid cuts to experiment with social meaning while his drawings play with gestures to reveal personal narratives. In the past, he has used objects such as sneakers, burnt notebooks in jars, broken rulers and cigarettes to search for alternative perspectives.

Raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Bo Lee attended Pratt Institute of Art and spent 10 years in Brooklyn before moving to Seoul. He currently resides in New Jersey.
