Francesco Paonessa is an artist from Toronto, Canada.

A graduate of OCAD University and York University, he is passionate about making art with whatever tools are available. His ambition is to create work that resonates with people on an emotional level. He is inspired by people from all walks of life, and believes that art is for everyone. A fan of melancholy subjects and fictional mischief-makers, he thinks bizarre things lurk in the corners of the imagination, and poking around is a good idea.
