Gianni Lee is a fine artist and multidisciplinary creative from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Now based in New York City, the epicenter of art and culture, Gianni’s creative skills spread across the realms of fine art, fashion, and music. Through his relentless pursuit of innovation and design, Lee has emerged as a true pioneer of futurism in the world of art. As well as having a studio in New York City, Lee utilizes the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan as his canvas to explore the intricacies of our technological, political, social, and racial climate. He fearlessly confronts the challenges of our time by deconstructing and reconstructing the world around him. So far he has painted walls, abandoned office chairs, refrigerators, wooden crates and even trash cans on the streets. Lee has been compared to Basquiat in an interview with i-D Magazine and has collaborated on collections with Levi’s, Gucci, and House of Aama. He was featured in WWD, Interview Magazine, and has starred in print campaigns for Kenneth Cole and Hennessy. Lee most recently was the Creative Director behind the Major League Soccer's Juneteenth Initiative “The Seeds We Plant, The Flowers We Share”. Giannis past exhibitions have explored slavery and the evolution of oppression through institutionalized racism. It was, in part, inspired by Lee’s wrongful arrest in 2017, which saw him placed behind bars for three days for a crime he didn't commit. He recently released a book titled Palette, which focuses on his years of photo archives, artwork, and raw sketches in collaboration with a Parisian publisher. Art lovers are excited for his new exhibition named “Nouveau Palette” that delves into the profound deconstruction of an artists creative process. Gianni’s exploration of artist expression never stops.
