This year, famed artist, Domingo Zapata, participated in the Arts Hearts Fashion Show in New York City. Art Hearts Fashion provides a unique platform where artists such as Domingo Zapata have the opportunity showcase their expressionistic art in a fashion week setting. In support of the transgender community, famed artist, Domingo Zapata integrated a highly anticipated art installation into a fashion show titled “Be Yourself Tags are for Facebook.”

Special invited guests included Steve Madden (Designer), Adrien Brody (The Pianist), Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl), Chef Jean George (French Chef), Jordi Mollà (Riddick), Luis Ortiz (Boxer), and Hiba Abouk (El Príncipe), and Garth Cheese (Celebrity Chef).

Domingo Zapata is a Spanish-American artist born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Currently, Zapata maintains studios in his Gramercy Park townhouse in New York City, the Design District in Miami and Hollywood. In these private ateliers, he produces Neo-Expressionist paintings as well as sculptures. He paints in both oil and acrylic, often incorporating mixed-media, collage, and graffiti.

Named an “Artist to Watch,” in 2011 by Whitewall Magazine, Zapata has quickly fulfilled this prophesy. Since, his work has lauded praise from international press such as The New York Times, Esquire Spain, Vanity Fair Italia, and The New York Observer. Recently, The New York Magazine deemed him, “in a league of his own,” while the New York Post proclaimed Zapata to be the “new Andy Warhol, with starlets begging for a sitting.”
