Dominic Senibaldi is a visual artist who predominately uses printmaking as his visual mode of communication. Working in Lithography, and Screen Printing, Dominic focuses on the expressive power of drawing. He also utilizes many other mediums such as graphite materials and watercolors. Dominic is interested in how each different medium has the ability to visually express different information in the content of the work. Lithography crayons have a visual softness, 4h graphite pencils have a harsh rigidness, and watercolors can have a fluid atmospheric quality. Dominic uses the visual language of each medium to explore concepts and communicate his ideas.
