Simon Sonsino

Profile

Simon Sonsino is a calligrapher, textual artist and author with over 20 years’ experience, who specialises in abstract expressionist art using calligraphy and all aspects of letterform. His book Textual Art (2015) is now on its 3rd print run and reached #6 in the Amazon Best Seller list for its category. Textual Art highlights just one aspect of his creative output. He also produces commercial work including hand-painted stationery and illustrated books under the name Art Ink. He has studied with world-renowned calligraphers including Gaynor Goffe, Peter Thornton, Tom Perkins, Yukimi Annand, Satwinder Sehmi and Gemma Black. He also works alongside local artists to help introduce letterform into their chosen medium, such as textiles and clay. Because of his unique style and approach, Simon is regularly called on as a demonstrator and workshop leader throughout the UK, notably for the largest arts festival of its kind in Europe: Art In Action (2015 & 2016).
