The Artist Will Be In Attendance
Refining and nourishing his unpolished creativity as a younger man, Dom attended Winchester School of Art and graduated with a BA (Hons). His post-graduate education saw him matriculate to the Glasgow School of Art to study for an MA, which stoked a pursuit for a creative outlet and a platform from which to convey a very personal message.
Dom’s predominant influences are two-fold. He spent a length of time as a student living in the Soviet Union and was immersed in the propaganda art in which Russia was imbedded, and then Northern Ireland, where he witnessed young Sinn Fein activists with heightened emotions, which were expressed with politically motivated public displays – street art in its rawest form.
Dom “realised that love and hate were different sides of the same coin” and it is this concept of conflicted emotion that reminds him of the strife of teenage-hood; both his, and of his own kids.
