Francesca Carella Arfinengo was born and raised in Arequipa, Peru. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours degree from the University of Manitoba School of Art in 2014.
Working mainly in print media and textiles, Francesca is inspired by her experience of immigration. Her work explores connections between land and identity, and loss and transformation. She has collaborated on several community engaged projects such as Art on the Bus, Steal this Gallery and Letter PeddlerPress – a mobile printing press.
