Rosette Bonello is a Maltese arte informale artist who now calls Marsascala, a fishing village in the southern quarters of Malta, her home. A bold creator whose inspiration, drive and passion stem from her primary work in education. Rosette is a kindergarten educator who, through her students, sees the world ina naive and child-like manner, escaping the mundanity of adulthood and the strains of society’s trivial expectations.
Rosette’s creative ability in front of a canvas was entirely self-discovered, her technique and expression self-taught and her repertoire coincidentally stumbled upon. If it weren’t for the artist’s passion and strive towards creative escapism, the artworks of Rosette Bonello would never have come to light — it is by chance, opportunity and gall that this mixed media on canvas finds itself hung on the walls of museums, exhibition halls and private collectors’ homes. Understanding Rosette’s determined yet humble and gentle nature depicts her art as a tender yet bold expression — a feat mastered by few and as challenging as it gets. Her work as an arte informale artist has been duly noted by acclaimed critic, Giorgio Di Genova
Her mixed media on canvas works have been on display locally in Malta, primarily in the prestigious Pardo Hall in Palazzo Parisio in October 2018 and through the Introspection exhibition held at the Rudy Buhler Art; The Colour Project in Marsascala in July 2020. Her international exposure is most celebrated in Pescara, particularly due to her personal exhibitions at the Aurum — La Fabbrica delle Idee in 2017 and the Museo delle Genti d’‘Abruzzo in 2016 and 2019.
