Giant Robot is proud to present the art of Deth P. Sun at GRSF.
Upon graduating from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 2003, 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 60 group and solo shows, including two excursions to the U.K. Stylistically, Deth has been sticking with his popular chunky creatures, somber pallet, and dreamy backgrounds, but he recently been incorporating geometric shapes with brighter colors. Are these merely aberrations or a new direction? With 50 new pieces in the works, Sea Ghost will be a good indicator.
Giant Robot is a Los Angeles-based magazine about Asian and Asian-American pop culture that will soon celebrate its twelfth anniversary. In addition to running the GRSF art gallery and boutique, Giant Robot also operates locations in New York and Los Angeles, and publishes art books.
Deth P. Sun’s art show opening will take place from 6:30 to10:00 on Saturday, April 29.
GRSF is located at 622 Shrader Street in the Upper Haight. 415-976-4773.
