Sonja Salinas' Profile
“I paint to make you smile and pull you into the gap between reality and dream.”
My name is Sonja aka „Little Sonrisa“ and I am a daydreamer. At times I find my painted microcosm pretty weird, but always with a sense of truth and a touch of nostalgia.
I am Austrian by birth and American by choice, which perfectly explains the combination of weird and nostalgia, but my work is also influenced by the city I live in. Los Angeles with it’s strong lowbrow movement and bright colors plays an important role in my aesthetic. I paint to make you smile and pull you into the gap between reality and dreams, through which I tell stories about strange worlds and creatures, that speak to the child within.
