Sun Yuan & Peng Yu

Sun Yuan & Peng Yu from Beijing

Sun Yuan (1972 Beijing), and Peng Yu (1974 Heilongjiang) are a duo of contemporary conceptual artists living and working collaboratively in Beijing.

Both graduated from the High School of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, and later from the Central Academy of Fine Arts oil painting department, also in Beijing.

Collaborators since the late 1990s, Chinese artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu create provocative works that take as their subject some of the most compelling and complex issues of our day. Their work has a reputation for being confrontational and produced with very extreme mediums. This attitude has made Sun and Peng part of the most controversial artists in China nowadays.

Their work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in spaces and events such as: Galerie Perrotin, Paris; ICA Gallery 1, Singapore; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Arario Gallery, Seoul; Tang Contemporary Art, Beijing; Conciergerie, Paris; National Taiwan Museum Of Fine Arts; National Portrait Gallery, Sydney; dOCUMENTA(13) Kassel; 3rd Moscow Biennale; Groninger Museum, Holland; National Art Center, Tokyo; Saatchi Gallery, London; Tilton Gallery, New York; 51st Venice Biennale.
