Celebrating visual art of the human form


Dominic Laporte

I am a painter and mixed media artist from Ottawa, Ontario. My focus has been portraiture, whether abstract, interpretive or realism for the past 8 or 9 years and I've yet to walk off that path. After graduating from Canterbury High school, a specialized art school in Ottawa. I was accepted to the Illustration program at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario where I graduated in 2015.

Beyond that my personal work is very much focused on a momentary bliss or feeling that we all get, but can't replicate, or capture, but often call it 'content' when it lasts long enough to give it a name. My time as a graffiti artist has a tremendous influence on the way I work now, aesthetically and methodically I work quickly with bold colors, and work to grab the viewer upon first glance with a punch of pure beauty and impact of the image.
