Working primarily in drawing and animation, Sun Xun creates artworks that challenge the boundary between reality and fantasy. In recent years, Sun Xun uses New Media Art as a starting point to explore more possibilities within the expansive realm of visual art: he explores narrative methods using diverse mediums such as newspaper, book, woodcut print, Chinese ink, pigment powder, probes into non-linear expressions of time and space, and inquires into both realistic and fantastical representations based on his own understanding of society and sociological theories. Sun Xun (b. 1980, Fujian, China) lives and works in Beijing. Sun Xun has recently had solo exhibitions at Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia (2018); Saint Louis Art Museum, USA (2018); Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Taipei (2017); 2016 Audemars Piguet Art Commission, Miami Beach, USA (2016); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, USA (2016); Yuz Museum, Shanghai (2016); National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan (2015); Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg, Germany (2015); Hayward Gallery, London, UK (2014); Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada(2014); The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA (2013) etc.
