Sun Dongxu, born in the 1980s, graduated from the Mural Department of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 2008. Her creations include oil painting, sculpture and puppet design and her artworks are full of personality, delicate images and rich expressions. In 2008, Sun Dongxu transformed the little girl in paintings and paper works into JSD (Jacoo Sun Dollform) elf puppets with spherical movable joints. In 2011, Sun Dongxu's elf puppet Jacoo Sun Doll was born. In 2015, Sun Dongxu was invited by Zhou Xun to attend the charity event "One Night". Two of her JSD elf puppets were auctioned for public benefit and received a donation of 35,000 yuan in total. While many artists use 3D modeling to make dolls, she still insists on hand-carving, insizing and adjusting every detail of her doll. In 2018, the KUKUMATA ball jointed PVC doll was born. Sun Dongxu's oil paintings and sculptures have also been exhibited in Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Venice, Rotterdam and many other cities, and have won praise from the art scene and the critics.

"Meeting Intellectuals in the Spring Hills" is one of the University's lecture series where the University will invite social elites in such fields as culture and arts to share with our students in form of salon or lecture to promote a discussion of thought-provoking issues or soul-searching experiences. During the lectures, everyone will have a chance to listen and respond on their world views, their aspirations, and intellectual taste in life.
