Francesco Paonessa (he/him) is an artist from Richmond Hill, Ontario, and a graduate of OCADU Illustration.

Fascinated by the surreal and bizarre, he aims to create pieces that explore the connection between physical and emotional spaces. He combines organic shapes with elements of realism, often focusing on the human form, blurring the boundaries between ordinary and imaginary.

His artwork is created with graphite, coloured pencil, pastels, and acrylics.
