Bonita Silver is a self taught artisan whose inspiration came to her at the age of 16 while studying art in Kitchener. By practicing her art, Bonita’s own constructivism techniques and interpretations emerged under the great umbrella of Art Deco.
Being a geometrical artisan in Art Deco, Bonita researched the Art Deco Constructivism Era, which began in the early 1900’s in The Netherlands, with great interest. She began the process of establishing a collection featuring her works in this form of artistry.
Bonita first began her collection designs in the pen and ink medium, but over the years started to experiment with colour. Using oils, acrylics and leaf on everything from canvas to usable art forms, including fabrics, Bonita has now accommodated her designs on many scales.
It is Bonita’s hope that by resurrecting this art form she can ensure that this artistry will once again become established as a reigning art form and thereby helping her goal of becoming the leading Art Deco Constructivist Artisan in North America.
