His nickname was Mondo and he was known by Mondo d’Ho as an artist. He had Aids and died a sudden and tragic death in Corfu.
Having earned his diplomas in art and sculpture by 1967 he went to work in the art profession for various art and film journals. He has an extensive array of paintings and sculptures which over the years have been exhibited across major European cities such as Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam and before his death in Corfu.
He founded the Jane Mondona Foundation which helps artists and plans exhibitions for their works. Currently the foundation is headed by Sabine D. Kaatzer who is an artist herself and was a close associate of the late Mondo.
Having Aids himself, he also organized a program to help people infected by Aids using art as a means of helping them in their struggle for survival. In his last email he wrote that the foundation must give grants to sick artists to help in their recovery.
