On top of having the best exhibition name that we've seen all year 'Sex Mission, Sex Metal Hands. Watch Out For The Cops.' is the first solo show that Sonny Day has had in 10 years. Sonny is one half of the prolific and legendary power duo We Buy Your Kids (instagram: @webuyyourkids), who have basically worked for everybody and have in recent times extended their vast Lovecraftian creative tentacles into the Austin movie poster scene, creating some of the most stunning and irreverent takes on classic films such as Silence Of The Lambs, They Live, and The Warriors.
All made in a creative pressue tank of four weeks, Sonny's large scale paintings and drawings have been inspired by sex, death, missions, walking, and a healthy diet, which the artist has said on several occasions to be as, if not more important than, exercise itself.
I asked him to send me some cryptic work in progress images, and he sure did...he sure did.
