Make It Happen! Domingo Zapata, Artist


As a young boy in Spain, artist Domingo Zapata was inspired by the beauty of the landscape around him, and his creativity was fueled when helping his dad paint cars. After college, Domingo moved to New York and took a job on Wall Street. The job paid well but didn’t fulfill his artistic goals. He wanted to be an artist. So, at night and on weekends, Domingo painted and created his art. One day, a client noticed one of Domingo’s paintings. He bought it, and then hosted a showing of Domingo’s art.

With courage and discipline, Domingo then decided to dedicate himself to becoming an artist and an entrepreneur. Today, he travels around the world creating his art and inspiring others to achieve their own goals with discipline and purpose.
