An illustrator and photographer now based in Toronto, Ontario, Dominic Bugatto was born in Bradford, England and spent his formative years in the west end of Montreal, Quebec. Dominic says he knew wanted to be an artist from a young age: “The minute I picked up a pencil as a kid. It was all over then.”

These days, he works primarily as an illustrator and designer, though he also photographs both in the digital format and using vintage film cameras.

Some of his clients include: The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, The Hollywood Reporter and The Washington Post, as well as major brands including Disney and the NBA. Dominic’s work is held in many private collections and most recently the Library Archives Of Canada.Website:
