Sun Xun is one of China’s most talented and ambitious young artists. He experiments with drawings, traditional ink paintings and woodcuts, and then uses new technologies to transform them into his artistic trademark – black and white animations. Born in 1980 in Fuxin, his works often explore and question what is known about Chinese history. In 2006 he founded his own animation studio called Pi and produces large amounts of work each year. In just under 10 years, Sun Xun has held over 30 solo exhibitions, most notably at the Hayward Gallery in London, and at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. He has also shown his films at more than 150 film festivals worldwide, including the 8th Seoul International Film Festival and the 25th Torino Film Festival.
