Sonny Boy

Santino Mouneu aka Sonny Boy is a native of Los Angeles, California. He has been painting motorcycles and wrenching on them since he was a young kid and started it as a business right out of high school. He has always been inspired by pinstripe artist such as Von Dutch, Big Daddy Roth, Larry Watson and lots of tattoo artists and graffiti artists like Filip Lou, Mike Giant and Chaz Bojorquez. Sonny Boy takes on most any creative jobs as long as they are challenging and allow him to advance his skills. Art has always been something he was into. He grew up around motorcycles, Harleys mainly, because of his father. His grandfather painted cars and bikes as a hobby and when he passed on, his dad had all of his spray guns and tools. His father told him one day that they were going to try and paint the bike that they were building for him at the time. So Sonny gave it a try and designed some flames and graphics with tape and his father sprayed it. After they took it to have it pinstriped by a professional pinstriper named Dennis Jones, he was hooked and wanted to do it more and more and get better and learn

everything he could. So naturally, he just poured himself into his two loves, art and motorcycles.
