The artwork of Little Sonrisa can be described as whimsical, delicate, and quirky. The way the over-sized headed subjects stare at you, whether they be children or creatures, it’s almost as if they actually see you. Her work fits nicely into the lowbrow category.
Sonya also known as Little Sonrisa states “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…”
