Studio Visit: Adrián Sonni

April 1, 2013

The Argentine muralist on using the city as a canvas.


Adrián Sonni was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he studied graphic design and worked as an Art Director for animation and film companies. He moved to Miami to work at FriendsWithYou. He currently resides in Brooklyn, New York where he divides his time between freelance commercial work and his art. He works with different mediums that include paper and pencil, illustrator, acrylic on canvas, and wooden sculptures. Yet, his passion is to paint murals in public spaces, finding that dialogue with the public through primary colors and playfulness.
