Presented by FABnyc's ArtUp Program

Artist Reception
Saturday, May 19 @ 2PM
Artist Alley @ Extra Place

Music Machine is the second exhibition for FABnyc's ArtUp Program site, Artist Alley @ Extra Place. Artists create work on the pavement alley of the former CBGB's, a cultural marker in NYC's Punk and No Wave scene and fertile ground for a new generation of creative exchange.

About the Artist
Sonni was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He began his career by painting murals in different neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, creating a following with his cheerful "characters de faciones" painted in primary colors. He is considered to be part of the first generation of street artists in Argentina. He was commissioned to do a public mural in Buenos Aires subway stations and the Glace Palace Museum. He was also invited to participate in solo and group shows in Argentina, Mexico, Costa Rica, Spain, The United States, Canada and Taiwan. In 2008, he was invited to work with art company FriendsWithYou as Senior Art Director.
