boy Roland

boy Roland was born out of the fury of pure, youthful love and raised amongst the wilderness of the forgotten North-Westland of Ontario. After growing into a foolish young lad, with a lustful heart, and a naïve eye, he proceeded to acquire scholarly qualifications he doesn’t use. Jaunting out into the world, he came into many wonders and mysterious places. Tragically, amongst those journeys, he lost a battle with a heinous bacterial brain beast, stripped of both his powers and mind. BUT FEAR NOT! boy returned from the Black Corridor, cramming his empty vessel of a cranium with all the raaddness in sight. With a high-five, he leaped off the beaten path, back into the wilderness of someone else’s memories, to start all over again. He now uses his new-old turbo brain to make all the art, defeat fear and sadness, whilst getting all up on existence.

Dominic Laporte

I am a painter and mixed media artist from Ottawa, Ontario. My focus has been portraiture, whether abstract, interpretive or realism for the past 8 or 9 years and I’ve yet to walk off that path. After graduating from Canterbury High school, a specialized art school in Ottawa, I lived in Montreal for a year while enrolled in Concordia Universities Fine Art program, majoring in Drawing and Painting. Realizing at the time I needed further technical training and conceptual theory, I decided to leave Concordia and later was accepted to the Illustration program at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario where I graduated in 2015.

 I’ve been painting full time since I’ve been out of school and finishing up a collaborative show with my older brother, a renowned graffiti artist, we’ve been working on blending our styles and different artistic perspectives. The combination of a traditionally trained artist and a self-trained artist is bound to create something interesting, so that is what we wanted to explore. Beyond that my personal work is very much focused on a momentary bliss or feeling that we all get, but can't replicate, or capture, but often call it 'content' when it lasts long enough to give it a name. My time as a graffiti artist has a tremendous influence on the way I work now, aesthetically and methodically I work quickly with bold colors, and work to grab the viewer upon first glance with a punch of pure beauty and impact of the image.
