Lizzee Solomon was born in New York City and grew up in suburban Chicago. From an early age, she was inspired by underground comics, The Hairy Who, and 90s cartoon shows. Lizzee earned a BFA in Studio Art at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA in 2011. She is currently based in Pittsburgh, and exhibits in the mid-Atlantic region. Lizzee also self-publishes Mutual Paradise, a comic zine, and exhibits at regional independent comic expos.
“I believe in art that is vibrant, arresting, and accessible. This has led me to pursue working in a variety of different media, including painting, sculpture, illustration, and comics using traditional and new tools. Subjects that interest me are women, food, tropical motifs, and kitschy objects. My aesthetic is twisted, featuring exaggeration, graphic lines, and bold colors. In my art practice, I aim to confront the magnificent, ridiculous, terrifying world we occupy today. I digest, dissect, and divulge, and I hope you do the same.”
