Amparo Dominguez Biography
Amparo Dominguez was born in 1968 in Spain. Dominguez holds a Fine Arts degrees from the University of Valencia, Spain. There she met another fine arts student, Jesus Llopis. They
immediately started creating together. This this unique collaborative partnership and
relationship continued to grow. They married and their work together continued to
evolve. Dominquez and Llopis further developed their creative work which led to
diverse exhibitions in Italy and Spain. In time, they founded their artistic group
“Trafic d’Art” which conceptualizes and creates artwork as a team.
Amparo is a multidisciplinary artist, painter, and sculptor. One of her primary subjects
are torn comic paintings. Here Amparo shows two of her passions, comics and
classic retro advertising. In her last year at the University she worked as a graphic
designer at an advertising agency. This experience augmented her interest in
transforming iconic marketing and images. Amparo brings to the present a
contemporary approach. The tears in her composition represent the passage of time.
She masterly combines the beloved comic world with nostalgic billboard advertising
from another era.

private collections around the world. She also has been awarded several awards listed
