Sculptor and ceramist Ganni Bonnici (1932-2019)

The MSA is saddened by yet another loss today, that of important sculptor and ceramist Ganni Bonnici (1932-2019).

Ganni Bonnici was awarded the Gold Medal by the MSA in 1990 for his achievements in sculpture. He was also a member of the MSA and formed part of the Committee of the MSA.

In 2012, the MSA organised a retrospective exhibition by Harry Alden and Ganni Bonnici to celebrate the 160th Anniversary since its foundation. The poster of this exhibition can be seen below.

Malta’s art scene is poorer with the recent passing of great artists like Ganni Bonnici, Harry Alden and Philip Chircop.
