Domingo Zapata (Spanish/American, b.1974) is a Contemporary artist known for his colorful, Neo-Expressionist paintings and sculpture. His body of work addresses themes of sexuality and opulence in a colorful, graphic aesthetic, such as in his Polo series and recent works depicting American pop culture icons.
Born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Zapata moved to London where he studied at the Regents College from 1993–1997 and later attended the American University in Washington, D.C., eventually moving to New York in 1999. His early jobs in New York were on Wall Street and in the music industry before committing to art full time. He has received several prestigious commissions for public installations, including the One World Trade Center lobby, the Plaza Hotel in New York, and a panel for the newly restored Colosseum in Rome.
