Montreal-born Melissa del Pinto is a painter best known for her large-scale paintings of birds that take center stage against a solid-colored background. Each of her oil paintings presents a surprising complexity of colors, brushstrokes, details and spectacular textures. Melissa del Pinto’s skill with spray paint gives her work a very contemporary feel.
Her work can be found in corporate, public and private collections. Prestigious institutions such as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (La Petite du Musée) and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra (La Délivrance de L’Aiglon) have commissioned Del Pinto’s work. She has also created murals for organizations such as Starbucks, Shopify, Mad Radish, Kiehl’s, Jansport, Côte-Nord Tremblant, Jansport, MU and others.
