Beijing-based animation director Jiamin Liu has already amassed an impressively large and diverse body of work for such a young artist.  She has recently returned to China following 7 years in Edinburgh and London and joins CAGN to introduce ‘Animate!’, a surreal mash-up of drawn and cut-out animation and filmed footage.
