Esmond Lee 李春錦 is an artist, photographer, and practising architect currently living and working in the suburbs of Toronto. As a second-generation Chinese Canadian, Lee explores long-term and intergenerational experiences of migration in peripheral spaces. He holds a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Toronto and draws from his background in architecture to examine identity, belonging, and nuanced cultural changes in the built environment. He is proud to create socially engaged and hyperlocal work that strengthens his community. He recently participated in Ontario Heritage Trust’s Doris McCarthy Artist-in-Residence program and created a 250-foot vinyl mesh installation for Nuit Blanche Toronto Scarborough. Lee is supported by the Toronto Arts Council and Ontario Arts Council and is recognized by the Ontario Association of Architects.
