Cultures of Resistance Awardee — Sweden
Anders Sunna is a contemporary Sámi artist who grew up in Kiruna, Sweden and lives and works in Jokkmokk, Sweden.

In his paintings, Sunna examines stereotypes of the Sámi, as well as the general public’s ignorance of Sámi culture. In his artistic work, Sunna combines painting with collage and street art techniques.
Sunna received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) and is using the award to support his art uplifting the Sámi struggle for indigenous rights in the Nordic countries.
