Austin Lee

Born 1983, Las Vegas, NV. Lives and works in New York City.



Austin Lee’s airbrush paintings and sculptures often combine digital technologies with traditional media. Lee was born in Las Vegas, Nevada, and raised in Philadelphia. He received an MFA in Painting from Yale School of Art in 2013 and a BFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art in 2006. While a student at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, Lee’s studio doubled as a gallery space where he organized group and solo exhibitions to promote his artistic community. After attending Yale for his MFA, Lee moved to New York in 2013. In recent years, he has presented exhibitions all over the world from Kaikai Kiki in Tokyo to Mosaic Art Foundation in Istanbul and M WOODS in Beijing. Lee has collaborated with Jeffrey Deitch on the occasion of his ambitious solo exhibition Feels Good in New York in 2019, a curated solo presentation at the Armory Show and Good Pictures, a curatorial project with over forty contemporary artists, both in 2020.
