Domink Modlinski was born in 1970 in Warsaw, Poland. From an early age he studied printmaking and later attended the School for Artistic Crafts and Design in Warsaw. In 1987 he immigrated to Canada and studied fine arts at Ontario College of Art in Toronto, where he graduated with honours. It was while studying landscape painting, that Dominik was naturally drawn to the wilderness of Northern Ontario. Following his graduation he moved to the Algoma region of Ontario to paint at the Algoma School of Landscape Arts. Since then he continues his passion to paint the wilderness in various locations around the globe.
For over 15 years Dominik consistently returns to his isolated cabin in the northern village of Atlin, British Columbia to painting and explore. This wild location borders on the Yukon and Alaskan territories, which offer access to a diverse and spectacular ecosystem. Dominik’s painting journeys are a wilderness experience based upon weeks of traveling rugged and barren lands to capture in plein air style the majesty of nature. His northern travels have inspired him to explore further and visit many of earth last remaining wilderness areas. Some of the most extreme painting expeditions took him across continents and hemispheres such as Antarctica, High Arctic, Greenland, and Patagonia and most recently in to the wilds of Namibia and South Africa. As we witness disappearance of wilderness around the globe, Modlinski’s quest is to portray a need to preserve the beauty of our planet and inspire people to do so through his paintings, photographs, stories and videos.
