Dominic Avant's Photo

This year as well as last year, Dominic Avant’s work appeared in articles in The International Artist: Inside the Studios of the World’s Best Artists. Dominic was one of the top 20 painters selected by the Portrait Society of America’s 2016 International Competition, and also won an award for his painting “Patience” at the Portrait Society. His work was chosen from among over 2400 painters from all over the world.
Dominic is a professor at Ringling College of Art. He teaches as beautifully as he paints. His workshops build both technical mastery and your ability to accurately portray feelings, nuance and heart. No matter where you are in your painting journey, you will build a deeper understanding of the relationship between you and your subject.
Dominic is known for images that looks vivid, real and not like a photographic reference. He is painterly. His sensitive portrayals capture inner moods and quiet reflections. This is why he is one of the top portrait painters in the country today. He paints life into his paintings with an open heart and sensitive soul
