Learn More About Domingo Zapata

domingoZapataSpanish-American artist Domingo Zapata currently divides his time between New York, Venice, Paris, and Miami, creating Neo-Expressionist paintings as well as sculptures and mosaics.  Collage, oil, graffiti, acrylic, and mixed-use are some of the styles he uses to create his work.

Born on December 22, 1974 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Zapata began his studies at Regent’s College in London before moving to the United States to study at the American University in Washington, D.C.  During his time, he would develop a specialty in contemporary art, focusing on pastel drawings and acrylic paintings.  Zapata says his inspiration comes from a multitude of sources including childhood memories, everyday life, film actors, and famous works of art.

For over a decade now, Zapata’s work continues to receive acclaim.  He has been featured in the New York Times, Vanity Fair Italia, Esquire, and the New York Post named him the new Andy Warhol. His work has captured the attention of famous names like actors Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio.  Zapata’s work is also featured prominently in the commemorative mural currently seen in New York’s One World Trade Center.

When he isn’t busy painting, Zapata is also an experienced songwriter.  He has written lyrics for names like the late Michael Jackson and Cuban American singer-songwriter Jon Secada.
