Dominic is a native of Chicago Illinois and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign and a Master of Fine Arts from the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis. After completing his BFA studies, he spent two years working for an aerospace company producing fabrication and assembly drawings for satellites, military aircraft, and mobile artillery units. He next spent over a decade in the tradeshow industry where he oversaw worldwide exhibition programs for major multinational corporations. Dominic has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions across the United States and he is represented by Baang + Burne in New York City and Fulton Market Gallery in Chicago. He teaches at Chicago Industrial Arts and Design Center and manages the Casting Department.




As a former design engineer of the Military Industrial Complex, Sansone brings his unique perspective to the subjects of warfare, violence, media, and culture. His work asks us to examine the imagery we surround ourselves with, from monuments to video games, and how we've inured ourselves to its represented reality.
