Dominic Chambers is a young artist living and working prolificly in Milwaukee, WI. Born and raised in St. Louis, Chambers is a recent graduate of the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, the Yale/Norfolk summer program, and a recipient of the School of the Visual Arts' New York Studio Residency.

Working with multiple drawing and painting media, Dom's work moves with vibrant colors, sharply incised shapes, and rich surfaces. Pulling from his experiences as an avid reader in a difficult environment, his work creates a pictorial environment for black men that embraces imagination and accepts vulnerability as a part of manhood. 

Dominic was selected by the Plum Blossom Initiative as a Wisconsin participant in the 2016/2017 Bridge Work series of exhibitions. He begins his MFA at Yale in 2017.
