Dominic Laporte

Born and raised in Ottawa, Dominic continues to pursue his art career in Toronto. Art and music have been an extremely important part of his life for the last 10 + years. Dominic was first influenced by his brother who is a prolific graffiti artist. His mother is a lifelong painter, and his dad was a deejay and record collector. All of these aspects have driven him heavily into mixed media paintings, combining a wide variety of materials and color to create what he feels expresses the soul of the portrait.

“I’m a very nostalgic person, and tend to delve deeply into cherished memories and past events and that’s what my intention is with my current work: to create a visual representation of the person’s memory and soul.”
