Sun Xun's animations are made up of thousands of meticulously drawn images in a variety of media, often encompassing text and images from world history, politics, the natural sciences, and his own personal iconography. Drawing from strategies used in political cartoons, theatre, and educational films, Sun questions how history is told, mythologized, and propagated. Sun Xun was born in 1980 in Fuxin, China. He graduated from the print-making department of China Academy of Fine Arts in 2005. He currently lives and works in Beijing. In 2005 he established Pi Animation Studio. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Drawing Center, New York; Platform China, Beijing; Kunsthaus Baselland, Basel, Switzerland; and at numerous film festivals around the world.
