Born in Toronto and raised in Montreal, Matt Chessco is a former industrial designer and a mechanical engineer. He lived in Vancouver for a year before moving back to Montreal in September 2020.
Back in January 2020, he decided to drop his full-time job to pursue his dream: becoming an artist. At that time, his artistic style was barely defined and he hadn't sold any artwork. People around him said he was crazy but he was determined to follow his dream so he kept going.
As of September 2020, he already has commissions for several months ahead, more than 1.3M followers on TikTok and dozens of partnerships with brands who want him to promote their products.
