Painter and printmaker Bruno Leti was born in Roccantica, north-east of Rome. He emigrated with his family to Australia in 1952, where he eventually studied fine art and trained as a teacher at University of Melbourne, Monash University and RMIT University. Bruno taught art in Australia and Canada and travelled extensively internationally, eventually returning to Australia to post-graduate studies at RMIT and the position of Education Officer at the National Gallery of Victoria in the 1970s. After several years of teaching, he became a full-time artist, exhibiting in Australia and overseas from 1968.

Leti is represented in most national, state, collections in Australia including the National Gallery of Australia, as well as the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC and other important collections in Germany, Italy, Britain and Japan. He has won a number of major awards, including the Pollock-Krasnar Foundation Grant in New York, a State Library of Victoria Fellowship in Melbourne, and residencies at the Australian National University in Canberra.
