Pop artist Domonique Brown creates original artworks exploring racial identity through the combination of simplified, recognizable subjects of our everyday culture. Her paintings defy traditional pictorial representation. She uses motifs, characters, and famous figures as a means of lending an egalitarian aspect to her work, thereby creating art that is as universal as the pop icons in her portrayals. Brown works from the ground up, layering marker, and acrylic strokes until she is able to carve out a colorful portrait.
This colorful pop art artwork is created on paper, it measures 24 inches high by 18 inches wide. This artwork is not framed. Convenient local Los Angeles shipping. Affordable U.S. and worldwide shipping options are also available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
Domonique Brown's 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 work to be a mixture fusion of pop art and expressionism, constructing the famous aspects of her subjects ranging from anonymous figures to pop culture icons, real and fictional.
“I engage with the signs and visual rhetoric of the average Joe to the person everyone should know in my representation of people of all colors found throughout the world with my use of colors to show the undertones of the human flesh and the stories that emit from it. Beyond simply just 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.”
