Everyone knows his famous and huge mural artwork of 12m x 9m that adorns the wall of Heritage square in Flagstaff, whose composition needed 9 months. In his artworks he creates worlds where mysterious creatures are hidden, enclosed in unattainable and inaccessible oceans absorbed in a melancholic but at the same time joyful examination of all the wonders of the world and of the human spirit, painted with oil that recreates the warm gold of the sun rises piercing through the clouds of a summer storm. Sorren is much in demand by investors; buyers include major newspapers, banks and personalities such as David Arquette, Donna Baxter, NIKE President Mark Parker and Jim Jarmusch.
