Chintis Lundgren is an Estonian-born animator currently living in Croatia. She studied fine arts at an alternative art school in Estonia called Academia Non Grata before pursuing a career as a painter. She later taught herself animation and quickly gained attention in the animation world for her quirky music videos and short films featuring a light, absurdist tone along with distinct anthropomorphic characters. In 2011, she created her own animation studio called Chintis Lundgreni Animatsioonistuudio and later co-founded Adriatic Animation, an animation studio based in Croatia. Her films have screened at numerous international animation festivals including Annecy, Zagreb, and Ottawa.
