Her use of colors comes from the advice of her former teacher who stated “people are made of various colors. They are not simply a shade of brown...” these words shaped her style as a fusion of pop art and expressionism, constructing the famous aspects of her subjects ranging from anonymous figures to pop culture icons, both real and fictional.
Domonique Brown explores the concept of racial identity in her art. She often uses motifs, characters, and famous figures from popular culture as a means of lending an egalitarian aspect to her work, thereby creating art that is as universal as the pop icons in her portraits. As she stated, “I engage with the signs and visual rhetoric of the average Joe, everyone should be able to understand my representation of people throughout the world. My use of colors shows undertones of the human flesh and the stories that emit from it. Beyond simply drawing portraits, I want my artwork to speak and fight for equality in the art world."
Brown received her A.A. in Graphic Design from Mount San Antonio College before going on to graduate from California State Polytechnic University with a B.S. in Public Relations. She also holds an M.B.A. in Marketing from California State University Dominguez Hills.

Domonique Brown is a contemporary Pop artist from Pomona, California. Brown creates energetic portraits that defy traditional pictorial representation. She works from the ground up, layering marker and acrylic strokes until she carves out a colorful portrait.
She graduated with an A.A. in Graphic Design from Mount San Antonio, B.S. in Public Relations from Cal Poly Pomona, and M.B.A. in Marketing from CSU Dominguez Hills. Her work is a fusion of Pop art and Expressionism, constructing patchwork portraits from Tupac and Basquiat to Woody and the Simpsons.
About her work Brown states: "I am more than just a woman. I am a black woman. I am part of a race that as fine artists remain unappreciated in contemporary discourse. When you walk into any major art museum, how many works feature or are created by a black artist? Our voices, ideas, and stories remain almost silenced in the fine art world. I want to be a part of a new level of discussion. I want my portraits to tell unknown stories. I want the people of my culture to be represented.”
