Jea Rhee ( My Little Robot Friend ) is an Artist/Author from London, Ontario. An Alumni of Concordia University’s Fine Arts Program [Art History], she now resides in Greater Montreal, QC, Canada.
An advocate of mental healthcare for those affected with mental health issues, she explores how much today’s Digital Age impacts our lives and the future of mental health within our greater communities. Part of her mandate is to explore a new series of books concerning her experiences with, what she has coined “Hyperreal Psychosis,” and her knowledge of “The Truman Show Delusion”, and to help end stigma around mental illness.

Since 2013, MLRF has incorporated her art by using limited technology at her hands. A Smartphone. From experimental therapy for the next few years, she started with an iPhone 4, and upgraded gradually over the years in Apple smartphone technologies. Even this site was built on her phone and is continually updated with it. From photography to music, relying on other artists participating on the digital art studio of the inter-web. Social media is her main platform, but without it, she would still be creating… except few would have access to it. Or would they? (You need to know, to know). Butter is, it’s all for the culture. Hip Hop ya don’t stop….. ya don’t know how much it is actually going through my life journey. This is a bond between two adults who are also not trying to be the same person as the other people think they have been in their lives for the past present future generations and experiences shared. Life is about change. This life is about mental illness awareness.
