George Bono was born and raised in Gloucester, Massachusetts. He has been in South Jersey for 40 years with a couple years in California.
"I started drawing at a young age. My mother used to love to paint, that's where I may have picked up the desire to paint many years later. I like to paint game boards and pub and inn signs that have lots of color to them. I paint on pine, birch plywood and when possible, reclaimed pine. All my paint is acrylic. I let the wood dictate how it takes the paint. Every section of boards and signs are individually painted. I hope others enjoy what I enjoy painting." -George
George was a participating artist in our 2021 Boardwalk Art Show. His work was quite a hit with the crowd. We hope you enjoy the show as well!
