Sonni's World

Sonni is an Argentine artist currently based in Brooklyn. I first met him on a family trip to Buenos Aires in 2008. He was painting a huge mural in preparation for one of his solo shows, and I immediately dug his style. We met again in NY last year, and I was able to catch up with everything he's been working on.



This guy is a machine of creativity. Paintings, installation, sculpture, comics, design, illustration, huge outdoor pieces, animation, he does everything. Yet the content for all of these different mediums begins with his drawings. Sonni's iconic characters live in a world from our youth, where simple shapes and primary colors form giant boomboxes, musical instruments, pencils and paint. When I look at his work, I feel the need to grab my art supplies, put on some music and start making things along with his characters.

Sonni's art is a great example of how your drawings and ideas can evolve into any medium, creating a massive and cohesive visual language. For more, check out Sonni Studios. He's also on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
