Sisi Sun was born in Shanghai, China in 1980. She has loved modern art and photography since her childhood. She has been to Japan to study the modern arts in 2011. She has always had a great affection for colours. The artist herself admits, “I am over the top when it comes to colours, people cannot live without colours.” She developed a fascination for Orphism, a movement that strove for the harmonious mixture of colours. Although her mother encouraged and guided her daughter, Sisi herself received no formal artistic education and her talent was left to develop unconstrained. She admits to painting instinctively and like Bonnard, one of the artists who has most influenced her work, ambience is more important than drawing. For this reason, she paints directly onto her canvases without any preliminary sketching.
