Studio Sundays: The Art Studio of Sonny Assu

Artist Sonny Assu in art studio
Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of Canadian artist Sonny Assu. Sonny works in a variety of media, always taking a unique approach with materials and presentation. I am really smitten with the drums pictured in the image above as I like the restraint of colour palette that results in subtle tonal work that graces the surfaces of these drums.
