Dominick Hiddo is a self-taught visual artist born and raised in Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York. His work challenges the perception of all that we know and understand. While drawing inspiration from mysticism, religion, and cultural traditions of the world, he explores the concepts of enlightenment, death and the after-life, reincarnation, and the complexities of the human experience in all its constructs. He is directly inspired by the works of Joan Mitchell, Hilma af Klint, Kandinsky, Chagall, the Russian Avant-garde, and Asian Art.
He currently serves on the Kingston Arts Commission. And he lives and works out of his studio in Kingston, NY
Born and raised in Flatbush, Brooklyn, Dominick has always been fascinated by the textures, motion, and energy of New York City. After completing the undergraduate and graduate program at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and working on Wall Street, he craved something deeper. He became a pilgrim of the world for a few years — renouncing his former life, going from one extreme to another. In 2012, Dominick returned to New York and began a new journey with painting. First, as a creative outlet. Then, as a means to deeply express his experience. Completely self-taught, Dominick's work embodies the mystical and spiritual – combining poetry, motion, color, and light to examine and reflect on the process of self-transformation and renewal. He currently lives and works out of his studio in Kingston, NY.
