Giant Robot is proud to present new work by Deth P. Sun at GR2.
Upon graduating from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 2002, Deth P. Sun grasped the indie art world by the eyeballs with his paintings of mysterious catlike people, cloaked children, and floating animals. Standing on barren landscapes, suspended in water, and surrounded by clouds, Sun’s humble-yet-heroic characters instill the purity of a Precious Moments ceramic with the dark whimsy of a Maurice Sendak’s children’s book and epic proportions of a Brothers Hildebrandt airbrush mural.
Since his first solo show at GR2 in the summer of 2003, the Oakland-based artist has taken part in no less than 70 group and solo shows, including an excursion to the U.K. Stylistically, Deth has been sticking with his popular chunky creatures, somber pallet, and dreamy backgrounds, but his latest work has featured new elements of fine linework, detailed landscapes, and sea battles.
The opening reception for the artist will take place from 6:30 – 10:00 on Saturday, April 28.
