At five, Dom visited Walt Disney World for the first time. The trip not only sparked a lifelong love for the parks, but taking a pencil to his autograph book, Dom drew his first Mickey.
As his love for Disney grew, so did his dream. During a trip to Hollywood Studios in 2008, an artist drew him Donald Duck, adding, perhaps prophetically, the words “To Dominick, future Disney artist”. From here, a goal was planted, that would blossom headlong into the future.
After his Disney College Program in 2016, he returned to New York and set out to build a portfolio of large scale pieces. As for his creative journey and work so far, Dom says “I input what inspires me—my output is usually Mickey Mouse”.
Dom’s work encapsulates the magic of Disney with his vibrant style. His work oozes with textured brush strokes while his keen eye for color creates an explosive and unique style. Spending years painting non-stop, he simultaneously grew his online following. When he realized the expansive response to his work, he was more eager than ever to make his childhood dream of becoming a Disney artist a reality.
In 2021 he was asked to be part of the Disney Creators Lab, which led to a fantastic experience with other creators, and opportunities within the Walt Disney Company itself. Now, this self-taught artist is impassioned to embark on a new journey with Disney Fine Art.
