ARTIST INFORMATION

Dominic Laporte is an Ottawa-based muralist and illustrator whose work combines traditional painting and mixed-media techniques. Over the past decade, Laporte has painted throughout Canada and developed a distinct style that’s become a familiar feature of Ottawa’s urban environment. Laporte’s painting has always been inspired by his direct surroundings and his murals allow him to reach audiences who may not frequent art galleries. He’s produced large-scale murals commissioned by Canada’s Museum of Science & Technology, Beau's Brewery, The Toronto Raptors, BMO, OSICO (Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization), Adidas, The Canadian Medical Association, the City of Ottawa Light Rail Transit Project, among many others.

Laporte’s passion for community-based and accessible art forms compliments his background in traditional painting. He has exhibited his work in solo, collaborative, and group exhibitions for over ten years, with shows in Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, and Barcelona. As a graduate of Sheridan College’s Bachelor of Illustration, he was awarded first place in the James Lee Foundation’s annual National Art and Design Competition.
