Bratsa Bonifacho’s paintings draw from the artist’s interest in Language, Classical Music, and dynamic color, and more recently, from his interest in technology and cultural identity. Over his long career he has created work in a variety of media, and has been influenced most significantly by his experience as a child growing up in the midst of WWII, experiencing its repercussions on his home of Belgrade. By combining phrases and letters he creates abstract paintings with messages embedded on their surfaces, explorations of society.
Bonifacho holds a MFA from the University of Belgrade, Serbia. His work is held in many private, corporate and permanent museum collections across the world including the Canadian Embassy in Argentina, the Museum of Modern Art, Yugoslavia, the National Museum of Serbia and the Department of External Affairs in Ottawa.
