About Charles Lee:
Charles Lee (b. 1983, Honolulu) is an MFA Candidate at CCA in San Francisco. Lee’s work subverts the narrative that Black culture is a monolith by creating authentic narratives that address issues of reclamation, identity, family, class, authorship, othering; highlighting the existence of subcultures within the Black American diaspora. His work demystifies the act of being Black, showing the nuance of contemporary Black life. Lee is a recipient of Pabst Blue Ribbon’s Open Door Grant 2021 and has exhibited nationally and internationally and published in Oxford University Press.
