Domingo grew up in Palma de Mallorca, but later moved to London and studied at Regent’s College. After study, he moved to Washington DC and studied at the American University, specializing in contemporary art with a focus on pastel drawing and acrylic painting.
Zapata continued to improve his craft, and would eventually create the “Polo” series which focuses on themes of Spanish culture, classic literature and American pop icons. His work garnered him critical acclaim, incorporating a lot of text and visual cues, and would start to increase his net worth significantly.
He also worked with Jon Secada and Michael Jackson, writing lyrics for their songs. According to an interview, he uses a lot of personal experiences as inspiration, utilising memories, other works of art and film stars in his paintings. He also implements exaggerated reality, such that his work is closely related by critics to the pop-art movement. In the next 20 years, he would continue to flourish in the industry, and his net worth would also continue to grow.
Some of Domingo’s latest work include themes of sexuality and opulence, mixing reality with fantasy. Some of his mosaics can be seen in Ravenna, Italy, where he’s incorporated ancient Byzantine techniques in his work there. In 2011, he was named “artist to watch” by Whitewall Magazine, and since then he’s attracted a number of high profile publications, including The New York Times, Esquire, New York Observer, and New York Magazine. He’s also worked with high profile celebrities, such as Leonardo Di Caprio and Johnny Depp, and is reported to have collaborated with the investment bank Goldman Sachs. He’s has been called by the New York Post as the “new Andy Warhol”; regardless, his net worth continues to rise.
Zapata has studios in Venice, Miami, Paris and New York which are often the location of his exhibits; he is also represented by London’s Hus Gallery. Some of his most best-known exhibitions include “Societe Generale Banque Privee”, “Atelier Au Chateau Marmont”, “Kings Polo Classic”, “Zapata sur St. Baths”, and “A Bullfighter in New York”.
For his personal life, Zapata met his ex-wife Stacy Belyea, in London in the ‘90s; they have two sons, but separated in 2007. It is known that Domingo resides and works mostly in New York City. He also has a personal website which showcases his work.
