Domonique Brown is a contemporary pop artist from Pomona, California, who has made a name for herself as a creative leader and a champion of representation. Her work has been featured in major publications and platforms such as CNBC, Forbes, LA Times, and Ryan Seacrest. She has also collaborated with well-known brands such as Samsung, Disney, Dr. Martens, and more.

Brown is the founder of DomoINK, a lifestyle brand that offers art, apparel, and home decor featuring her original designs. DomoINK is more than just a brand; it is a movement that aims to promote diversity and inclusivity in art and retail. You can find DomoINK products in stores and online at major retailers such as Target, Walmart, Urban Outfitters, Macy’s, and more.

Brown’s work is inspired by popular culture, social movements, and her personal experiences. She uses vibrant colors and bold figures to create portraits that challenge stereotypes and defy traditional representation. Her illustrations are not only visually stunning; they also carry messages of positivity, joy, and resilience. She aims to inspire and uplift her audience, particularly young people of color who may not see themselves reflected in mainstream media.

Beyond Skin Deep is Brown’s latest exhibit, which showcases some of her most iconic and recent works, as well as some exclusive pieces created for our gallery. The exhibit explores the theme of blackness, in all its complexity and beauty. Brown invites us to look beyond the surface and appreciate the diversity and richness of black culture and identity.

The exhibit will run from February 3rd to February 27th, 2024, at the Ahmad Shariff Art Gallery in Claremont, California. The opening reception will be on February 3rd, from 6 to 9 PM, and will feature live music, refreshments, and a chance to meet the artist herself.
