Further information
John Sonsini is best known for portraits painted from life, and, for the past 20 years, Latino day laborers in particular. His subjects are hired as models off the streets of Los Angeles, where the artist lives part time. Sonsini's bare compositions and first name titles emphasize his sitters' humanity, dignity, and universality.
