About Domenic Esposito Fine Art

A Massachusetts-based artist and social activist, art has been an integral part of Domenic’s life since childhood. A graduate of Northeastern University, he also received art training at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Stonybrook Fine Arts, Artist Asylum, and Prospect Hill Forge, where he developed his metalworking skills. Considered first as a sculptor, he continues to refine his art with a vocabulary deliberately borrowed from the Italian Renaissance period, as well as his own personal cultivation of Asian culture and principles. In 2018, he garnered national attention with the huge sculptures of opioid spoons he placed on the doorsteps of the FDA and major pharmaceutical giants, and founded the Opioid Spoon Project, a 501(c) (3 ) to serve as a solutions-based platform that demands legal justice and voices the devastation of opioid addiction.

Domenic’s work includes sculptures, paintings, commissions, and public art installations, and has been privately collected and exhibited in a range of galleries and art fairs across the United States, including Canvas Fine Arts, Boston; Piano Craft Gallery, Boston; Insight Artspace, New York; Scope, NYC; Art Palm Beach; and SOFA Chicago Art Fair, among others. In 2019, her work Accountability won “Best in Show” at the Arts Benicia Juried Show in California. He also completed a prestigious artist residency at Mana Contemporary, which led to his print work with the legendary Gary Lichtenstein. For more information follow on Facebook
