|Born in Catalonia, Jordi Bonet was turned to art early in life by the loss of his right arm. He began to work in paint, ceramics, and murals. After studying in Barcelona, he settled in Quebec in 1954, where he continued his studies.
Over the next twenty years, he created more than a hundred murals in ceramic, cement, bronze, and aluminum across the world, and associated with the likes of Salvador Dalí. Much of his work was in sacred and liturgical art. He won a place among Quebec's most important artists before his early death of leukemia at age 47.
