Bono's love of the arts started at age 10 but he didn't pursue more of it to concentrate on his career. Soon after he earned a degree in Bachelor in Business Management in the Philippines, he pursued a life in the United Kingdom and for the next 30 years rarely undertook any artistic endeavours.
In 1998, after he met his soulmate he decided to pursue his first loved profession and earned a qualification in Interior Architecture at Chelsea School of Arts and Design in London.
He moved with his partner and young daughter to Hong Kong in 2010 where he became a self taught artist painting in oil and watercolour in many variety of subjects with vivid 'happy' colours. Cityscapes, still life and whimsical images are what he enjoys painting. But also likes to experiment with other materials and textures as he explores abstract.
