Total years of experience:

Dominic is a Canada-based muralist and illustrator whose work combines traditional painting and mixed-media techniques. His work largely focuses on themes embodying the natural world and most recently exploring symbiotic relationships found in nature and using those to carry out more in-depth concepts and narratives. Over the past decade, he has expanded his mural practice on an international level and developed a distinct style that’s become a familiar feature of Ottawa’s urban environment. His work has always been inspired by his direct surroundings and the murals allow him to reach audiences who may not frequent art galleries. Laporte has produced large-scale murals commissioned by Canada’s Museum of Science & Technology, Live Nation Canada, Street Art Toronto, The Royal Canadian Navy, Bank of Montreal, Adidas, The Canadian Medical Association, the City of Ottawa Light Rail Transit, and the Nelson International Mural Festival, among others. Laporte’s passion for community-based and accessible art forms compliments his background in traditional painting. He has exhibited artwork and installed mural projects throughout Ottawa, Toronto, British Colombia, Québec, Barcelona and Sayulita, Mexico.
