Thomas Frontini (Canada 1967 - )


About

«As a painter, Thomas Frontini is a very good spinner of tales. He sees magic in the mundane, and explores the themes of creativity, youthful experience, and the transformative power of the imagination.» /DAVID GIBSON/
Thomas Frontini is a Canadian born artist raised in Kingston, Ontario of Italian and English descent. Thomas’ education in the arts began in art restoration and conservation in Florence Italy, on to receiving a Bachelors
