Junli Song grew up in Chicago, but lived abroad from 2012-2018 in South Korea, England, Italy, and South Africa. Her studies are similarly widespread: she originally majored in economics and international development at the University of Chicago and the University of Oxford, respectively, before returning to the creative path. She completed her MFA at the University of Arkansas with a concentration in printmaking in 2023, and is the current Grant Wood Fellow in printmaking at the University of Iowa. As an artist and storyteller, she works across a range of media from printmaking and painting to sculpture and animation to explore imagined worlds and personal mythologies.
