Born and raised in Queens, New York, Bonny John was born to immigrant parents from India. Growing up in apartments all over Queens, Bonny had a balanced exposure to his Indian heritage while embracing American culture.
He began drawing at an early age literally on the apartment walls around him, which had to be painted over every time his family had to move. Fortunately, there are photos exist that document his early experiments! With encouragement from his mother to hone his talent while learning from his father's work ethic, Bonny found his stride and passion for creating characters and telling stories far later in life.
Bonny currently resides in Central Florida and is looking to go wherever his art might take him.
