Jayne Lies’ is a Hong Kong native currently based in New
York City. Her work strives to document and connect the
human condition across time and space - a voice for
people who exist on the margins of life. Lies has worked
with a number of international publications and self-
published her debut book in 2018 named “520” - a celebration
of her fleeting story of freedom featuring photos, paintings
and written pieces created during her first seven years as
an illegal diaspora and voluntary exile of Hong Kong in NYC.
“520” was exhibited in NY Art Book Fair 2018 at MoMA PS1, and
can be found in the collections of the Irene Lewisohn Costume
Reference Library of the Metropolitan Museum and the Asian Art
Archive in America.

Her second body of work “Flower Spirits” - a multimedia
release that included a photography book and short film
showcasing eight up-and-coming stars from Tokyo - was
published by Shizen Brooklyn in 2019 and distributed to NYC
and Japan. Jayne has continued to grow her impact through
creative direction and filmmaking, developing the visual 

languages of black trans harpist & singer Ahya Simone, and 

Tibetan singer Yesh. Her work with these artists can be 

experienced through Pique, a multimedia platform and 

community of marginalized talents that Lies co-founded 

with other artists in the collective. She is also founder of

852ARCHIVE - a visual library for the Hong Kong diaspora 

around the world. Lies is currently working on her first 

screenplay and a new web series with the Pique family.
