Japanese-born Lieh Sugai is a New York-based artist who explores cultural traditions around the world. Her subject matter is the stories that occur between people and places, and how they are shaped by time, memory and culture. In this she uses her dual perspective as a Japanese immigrant living in America, exploring and documenting her two homes.
Lieh studied Graphic Design at Pratt Institute, where photography became her prevailing passion, as a way to enter inside different cultures, tell stories and push the boundaries of her creativity.
Her work has been exhibited at Foley Gallery and others around New York City, and internationally.
