Kestin Cornwall is a Canadian contemporary painter, whose work challenges and questions the relationship between art, social rights, politics, and freedom. Cornwall was born and grew up in the Canadian area of Windsor, Ontario. With a Grenadian father and American mother, Kestin spent much of his time nearby, in Detroit, Michigan. The city of Detroit introduced him to the American culture and society – music, fashion, racial divisions, food and cars, different from his childhood spent in Canada.
Cornwall completed the Art Fundamentals and Illustration programs at Sheridan College, Oakville in 2002 and 2006, respectively. While studying at the Sheridan, his interest and love towards arts increased and developed quickly. At this period, Kestin experimented with possible combinations of both classical drawing and painting with contemporary digital reproduction and screen-printing, working with uncommon, unconventional materials.
