Timothy Hyunsoo Lee (b. 1990) is watercolor artist born in Seoul, South Korea, but raised in New York City. Educated at Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT, USA) with a degree in neuroscience, drawing and developmental biology, he uses his background in cytohistology to create large-scale watercolor paintings and sculptures that explore his identity as a Korean-American, and as someone who has suffered from a panic and anxiety disorder since his childhood.

Timothy was the 2014 recipient of the VSA Emerging Young Artist Award given by the Kennedy Center (Washington DC, USA), as well as the International Emerging Artist Award in Dubai.

He currently lives and works in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, and has exhibited in New York City, at the S. Dillon Ripley Center of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, and internationally in Seoul, Dubai, and Madrid. He is currently represented by Sabrina Amrani Gallery in Madrid, Spain where he had his first European solo exhibition titled “double-sided” in 2014.
