Daughter of an important italo-brazilian neo-expressionist painter, Gianguido Bonfanti, she grew up surrounded by the artistic environment. Pérola Bonfanti supervised the "Programa Fundamentação" sponsored by Secretary of Culture of the State of Rio de Janeiro at the Escola de Artes Visuais Parque Lage in 2012. She has works in such countries as France, Austria, Israel, United States, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil.

NICOLINA maintains a home-base in New York but travels often, spreading her art around the world. She's transformed a harbor in Brazil into a floating gallery called FlutuArte, painted train cars in Chile, trucks in Japan, a tram in Italy, and Tap Taps in Haiti. In 2013, she presented the 13 Portals, an interactive street art experience merging technology, visual art and performance on the streets of New York. Hearts of the World, her ongoing international project, brings art to underprivileged children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to express themselves. Nicolina is the founder of the Free Art Society, an artist alliance dedicated to shifting art out of walled institutions and into the everyday public realm.
