About the Shortlisted Artists
Two Ontario-based professional mural artists were shortlisted by a jury to submit proposals for the 168 Division Street Mural Project.
Dominic Laporte is a muralist, painter and commercial illustrator based out of Ottawa, ON. Currently, his art practice is focused on large scale mural projects on a regional and national platform. His exploration of mediums through themes of nature and wildlife allows him to merge his different artistic practices and reach a growing international audience. He has developed a distinct style that’s become a familiar feature of Ottawa’s urban environment.
Peru Dyer Jalea is an internationally recognized Peruvian-Canadian muralist whose practice is informed by digital and traditional artforms and 25 years of painting graffiti. Peru aims to create works that communicate the need to rise above our differences by understanding the interconnectedness of all living things.
