Sonni

Sonni is one of a number of artists who have used their experience in graphic design and illustration as inspiration for urban art in Buenos Aires. Together with other artists from similar backgrounds, Sonni helped to define a style of street art defined by its playful cartoon aesthetic.

Sonni studied graphic design and has worked as an Art Director for animation and film companies. His artwork is a celebration of playful child-like imagination, often with a hint of irony. He seeks simplicity through the use of primary colours and a cast of cartoon-like characters elaborated from geometric figures. Sonni creates with a range of mediums and supports, including public murals, illustration, acrylic on canvas, and wooden sculpture.

Alongside his mural work in the streets, Sonni exhibits his artwork in galleries, conferences and festivals across the globe. While a part of Miami-based artist collective FriendsWithYou, Sonni worked with clients such as Hello Kitty, MTV, VH1 and Nick Jr. He is currently based in New York City.
