Beniamino Bufano

Beniamino_Bufano (profile pic).jpg

Benny Bufano (c. 1898–1970) was born in San Fele, Italy, spent his childhood in New York, and eventually became one of San Francisco’s most colorful characters and renowned artists. A lifelong pacifist, he was deeply inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi—to him, the embodiment of world peace. Bufano is best known for his modernist sculptures representing peace and his round, playful sculptures of animals, often monumentalized to gigantic proportions. Arte Italia is pleased to present this exhibit featuring a selection of Bufano’s sculptures, mosaics, paintings, sketches, and works on paper.

“It is an almost indescribable experience....even for a huge food lover like me. To be able to sit and watch a chef of that level, then get to ask questions while he cooks- wow. I hope you get to try this event just once in your life!”
