Running until the end of this week (November 27th) at My Plastic Heart’s NYC showrooms, ‘Carry The Fun’ is the latest debut show from Argentine artist and graphic designer Sonni. Featuring a collection of nine paintings and over forty of Sonni’s trademark wooden house sculptures, the exhibition has recently been put online, with all of the works available to purchase through MPH’s store (the ‘standing houses’ are available for $40 each, whilst paintings range between $60-$3,800).

MPH explain a little about the project-

“In Carry the Fun, Sonni portrays the virtuous fun in carrying the responsibility of the craft; that when artistic obstacles are mixed with passion and fun, the burden seems weightless.”

Hailing from Argentina, Sonni has worked for a number of different agencies both at home and in the US, with a long list of clients including the likes of Coke, Nike, Visa, McDonalds, MTV and Nickelodeon. His murals and illustrations have featured on walls and galleries around the world, with his recent large-scale ‘Boombox’ mural named “Best Public Art of 2011” by the Miami Times (pictured below). Founder of Brooklyn based Sonni Studios, Sonni  blends his love of illustration, animation, and public art in what has to be one of the most dynamic agencies in recent years.
