Domink J. Modlinski was born in Warsaw, Poland Nov 20, 1970.
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 in 1993. 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 peruses his passion to paint the
wilderness in various locations around the globe. As a matter of
course, Dominik incorporates the journey motif, his creative process
and his personal growth into his work.
In the early 90’s his travels led him to the Yukon wilderness and the
far North, where he truly found his inner creative calling depicting the
dramatic landscapes of Canada.
Now, 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.
This ever changing and harsh environment provides Dominik with limitless inspiration as he journeys through the path of nature’s four seasons.
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.
