Dominic Sean Vavala is a Visual Artist, 

Graphic Designer & Musician from Melbourne,

Australia. He began his journey into the Creative

Arts at an early age when he started showing an

interest in drawing after producing a large and

surprisingly detailed illustration of the video game 

 character Super Mario from memory. Over the years,

family and friends have observed and encouraged his talent, watching his skills develop along the way to eventually pursuing a career as Visual Artist & Graphic Designer.


Since graduating from VCE in 2011, Dominic has

worked as a Freelance Artist completing

commissioned work for numerous amounts

of people around Melbourne –

Portrait sketches, cartoon

characters, tattoo designs,

abstract paintings and

       logo designs;



there isn’t anything that Dominic will not attempt to create for his clients. He also had the privilege of meeting and having his Art signed by numerous celebrities such as actor’s Misha Collins and Jim Beaver (CW’s Supernatural), and heavy metal vocalist Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage).


Apart from his Artwork, Dominic is also a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. After constant inspiration and motivation from his Father (guitarist/songwriter) and Uncles (drummer and bassist), Dominic took an interest in learning guitar and drums - he later took it upon himself to learn bass guitar for Melbourne Rock band Chained Lizard. To expand his Musical knowledge, he commenced studying his Bachelor Degree in 2015 with Victoria University which he is due to graduate at the end of 2017. He has also been trained by well renowned musicians such as guitarist Raymond Smith and drummer Chris Quinlan.

Dominic is currently working as a freelance Artist/Graphic Designer, whilst studying for his Bachelor in Music. He is also in the middle of writing and recording his first album with Chained Lizard with the intention to release it within the next year or two; as well as working on his own Solo EP which is expected for an online release in October 2017. He has most recently been involved in acoustic duo work around the Williamstown & Yarraville area, playing little café gigs and also has been involved in a lead acting role in a short film.
