Bonifacho was born in Yugoslavia in 1937 and achieved a Masters in Fine Arts from the University of Belgrade, Serbia. He continued his painting studies in Rome, Italy and Germany. After working and exhibiting extensively throughout Europe, Bonifacho immigrated to North America, where he established his permanent home and studio in Vancouver, Canada.
An internationally recognized artist, his art can be found in corporate and national collections in Yugoslavia, Italy, Brazil, Germany, England, Australia, Japan, Argentina, Canada, and the US. He is also registered in Canadian Who’s Who, in Serbian Who’s Who in the Diaspora, in Who’s Who in America and in Who's Who in the World. Bonifacho has been exhibiting with Foster/White since 2004.
Bonifacho’s new series explores the tension between the logical, linear scripting of virus programs and their capacity for destruction. His large-scale oil paintings imitate the chaotic effects of computer viruses and worms by scrambling letters and messages.
Bonifacho's next solo exhibition will be in October 2013 at Bau-Xi Gallery, Vancouver.
