Barcelona-born sculptor Jordi Bonet settled in Montreal and built an international career.

This street and a nearby park are named in honour of painter, engraver, ceramist and sculptor Jordi Bonet (1932-1979), who was born in Barcelona, Spain.

At the age of seven, Bonet lost his right arm in an accident. Art then became his refuge. At age 20, he already owned his own studio and exhibited with much older artists.
