Bratsa Bonifacho

Bonifacho was born in 1937 as WWII began to spread across Europe. Caught as a child in the bombings of Belgrade, his experiences of war and man’s self-destructive nature are inextricably bound in his paintings. His recent work maintains his characteristic grid structure as well as the energy that asserts itself in brilliant explorations of colour, language and the cadences of classical music. Of his work, Bonifacho says, “The source of my art is the comprehension and channeling of strong emotions stemming from observation, current events or epiphanic memory: thoughts of environmental devastation; or blatant injustice; or peak moments of optimism and ecstasy. I see subjective awareness as the fuel of creative fire, and for a sustained body of work the emotive energy must be profound.”

Bonifacho achieved a Masters in Fine Arts from the University of Belgrade, Serbia and then continued his painting studies in Germany. After working and exhibiting extensively throughout Europe, he immigrated to North America, where he established his permanent home and studio in Vancouver, Canada.

In the mid-1960s, Bonifacho attracted a large measure of media atten¬tion by painting bold shapes in bright colours on the rooftops of Belgrade. This activity came to be popularly referred to as "Eyes Over Belgrade."  His work continues to be celebrated by the international community, and can be found in corporate and national collections in Yugoslavia, Italy, Brazil, Germany, England, Australia, Japan, Argentina, Canada, and the US. He has been exhibiting with Foster/White since 2004
