Basically, that means going mad in his own world and giving himself permission to be loose. That freeing spirit is found in all of Bonno’s work. “I don’t leave a painting until I believe in it” he says, “until it impresses me.” Some of his art influences include Egon Sheile, Lucian Freud, Picasso, Peter Saul, Robert Crumb and Jack Kirby to name a few.
