Dominik Schmitt

Dominik Leo Rudolf Schmitt, born October 4, 1873 in Neustadt an der Weinstraße, is a German Artist. His work includes mainly painting and drawing, but also film, video art, sculpture, installation, music and poetry. Thematically it deals with this subjectivity and questions of art and its terminology. Stylistically it catagories him to fantastic realism. Schmitt lives and works in Landau in der Pfalz 

Dominik’s interest in drawing began in childhood with an extensive collection of drawings. At the age of 16 he experimented with painting acrylic on wood, which lead to his first exhibition in the “Apocalypse of the Kunstverein” in Neustadt Saalbau gallery where he exhibited The Last Day a large painting on wood. 

Today, Dominik’s work deals and stems from a distinguished German art history, its earliest works being focused in figurative art. Dominik is incorporating mixed media to creat visions of fear and hope in the art form of the middle ages to the present.  Dominik’s work focus is the emphasis on the power of personal imagination, which puts him in the tradition of Romanticism.

Coming from Germany where artists tended to be neglected relative to Italian and French contributions from the point of view of the Anglosphere, Dominik rights this wrong by recreating the grand style paintings iconic to Italian and French art movements and subversively putting himself as a focal point.
