DOMA is an art collective from Buenos Aires comprised of four artists; Orilo Blandini, Julian Pablo Manzelli (Chu), Matias Vigliano (Parquerama) and Mariano Barberi. With backgrounds in graphic design, illustration and film, they began creating urban installations and graffiti in 1998 and since then have explored a seemingly endless variety of artistic endeavours.
Inspired by the complex and often turbulent reality of life in Buenos Aires, DOMA have based their art in the creation of alternative worlds, and use a cast of original characters to interact with the “real” world. Over the years DOMA have developed a distinctive and recognisable form of artistic communication, a language constructed using their characters, colours and their sense of the absurd.
The group’s creative output is driven by their desire to use all available information channels; as a result they have created everything from street art, sculpture, and installations, to plush toys, silkscreen prints and animations.
Their physical gallery space Turbo recently closed its doors, however Turbo continues to operate as a virtual gallery, through an online site and through a series of pop up exhibitions.
