Giant Robot is proud to host Smoke and Mirrors, a joint show featuring new work by Bay area based artist Deth P. Sun. We’ve worked extensively with Deth P. Sun and cannot be happier to work with him once again. His works have always inspired and excited both art fans and passers by. Contrary to some beliefs, Sun’s work has vastly grew over the years and was featured in the Giant Robot Biennale 2 in 2009.
Deth P. Sun’s acrylic paintings on panels bring epic landscapes and cosmic occurrences into a private and personal world. Influenced by David Attenborough, as well as the Moomin series and films of Terry Gilliam, Deth seeks to create a fantasy world as a reflection of his own experiences and worldview. It is a place where cold mountains loom under the stars, cloaked figures arrive with the night, and lone dreamers struggle–a place where hope and belief still shine in dark times.
