As one of South Africa’s most exciting young street artists of recent years, British-born Sonny is most well-known for his large-scale murals. A relative newcomer, Sonny’s paintings can already be found in various locations around the world including New York, London, Canada, Russia, Ireland, Miami and South Africa.
Taking influences from his African surroundings and wildlife, his vibrant work often fuses the natural world with elements of fantasy and geometric shapes. Sonny is currently using his unique style of street art to raise awareness for endangered wildlife on a global scale through his To The Bone project. As part of the project the self-taught artist will also be exhibiting his first body of canvas works in New York in May this year. This work combines classic wildlife imagery with a strong social message about the importance of wildlife conservation.
