Domenic Esposito is a Massachusetts based artist and social activist.
The decision to end a successful career in the corporate financial world, to pursue his art full time, demonstrates his authenticity, drive and passion. Art has been an integral part of Domenic’s Iife since childhood, with training from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Stonybrook Fine Arts, Artist Asylum and Prospect Hill Forge, where he developed his metalwork skills. Considered a sculptor first, he continues to refine his craft with deliberate vocabulary borrowed from Renaissance Italy, as well as his own personal cultivation of Asian culture and principles.
In 2018, he achieved national attention through the massive opioid spoon sculptures he placed on the doorsteps of major pharmaceutical giants, making a statement on behalf of all those deeply affected by this national epidemic, and remains active in this initiative. He founded the Opioid Spoon Project, a 501(c)(3) to serve as a solution-based platform that seeks legal justice and brings voice to the destructive effects of opioid addiction on people from all walks of life.
Domenic’s work has been exhibited in a range of galleries and art fairs across the U.S., 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. His work Accountability won ‘Best in Show’ at the Arts Benicia Juried Show in California in 2019. He also recently completed a prestigious artist residency at Mana Contemporary, which lead to his print work with legendary Gary Lichtenstein
