Born 1967 in Toronto, Canada
Franco DeFrancesca creates abstract digital images saturated with vibrant color, mounts them atop layered plywood and patiently hand coats each piece with epoxy resin. This process integrates the expansive possibilities of cutting edge technology with the timeless hallmarks of traditional painting. The elemental geometry of his compositions reference Op-art, post-painterly abstraction and minimalism. They are hypnotic in their intensity.
Franco De Francesca graduated from Ontario College of Art and Design. His work has exhibited in North America, Europe, and is included in various private and corporate collections globally.
