“The endless balancing act between realism and abstract, precision and freedom, patience and recklessness, perfection and chaos.” – Sonny

Switching mediums from acrylics to oil paints, Sonny’s most recent paintings see him exploring a variety of exciting new techniques, incorporating abstract and urban qualities into his strikingly realistic wildlife portraits.

SOLO EXHIBITION

'To The Bone' brings us face-to-face with the power and profound beauty of a wild world on the brink of extinction

Sonny’s first body of gallery work saw him exhibit a series of ten paintings in a New York-based solo show titled, ‘To The Bone’. The work explored the landscape of the fast-approaching demise of our world’s wildlife and how it’s intrinsically tied to humanity’s own ability to thrive. Each canvas is painted using acrylics and spray paint, on handmade wooden boxes (1200mm x 1000mm).

The exhibition artwork is closely linked to Sonny’s global mural tour under the same name, which saw him create large-scale murals of endangered wildlife in the streets of South Africa, Russia, Ireland, England, Canada, The Netherlands, Miami and New York. By bringing some of the world’s most iconic and endangered animals into urban environments, Sonny hoped to rekindle a long-forgotten connection to the wild.
