Born in Montreal in 1967. He grew up within a loving family. In 1984 he went in college in Visual arts. His teachers had a positive reaction towards his creations, pictorials and sculptures. His brother was dating a famous Canadian painter at the time whose works influenced Stephan in his creations. He was intended for a promising futur, his sculpture and technical drawing teacher, Mrs. Jeffard a friend and model for Picasso, proposed Stephan a recommendation letter for admission at the school of Fine Arts of Paris. Stephan was a rebellious teenager who seeks his sexual identity, he had great existential questions.
Destiny has made him meet his love, the man he still shares his life with. Torn between the desire of studying at a distance and his newly found love he chose to quit studying. He turned then to become a hairstylist, a more rational, but also creative work. This has enabled him to meet with thousands of people, and use his fascination with beauty, to transform ordinary into extraordinary.
After a pause of almost 20 years, he went back to his first passion and begun to paint again for pleasure, it was a revelation. His goal is to transmit an emotion of beauty, of sensuality.
He likes to explore freely, without constraints. Abstract Art is a new direction where he explores pure emotion without the constraint of a specific subject. Art pushes Pednò to explore avenues, where emotions and gestures are expressed more freely. Influenced by several painters, Pednò seeks introspection to personalize his art. He is ahead of trend s, he creates them. He was exposed several times in New York, Miami, Pittsburgh, Montreal. He sold to collectors in Paris, Dubai, Boston, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and more.
Pednò never had a plan for his career, first hepainted for pleasure, even if the desire of recognition was present. His first ambition is to please himself and be true to his emotions, It preserves the desire and brings the passion to life.
