Dooney is a visual artist residing in Wilton Manors, Florida, currently exploring both abstract themes that combine mathematics with emotional symbolism as well as classical themes like the human figure, myths in the context of the urban world. He also offers portraiture for both people and pets, murals, and customized artwork to fit specific needs and visions.
Born in the temperate yet tropical weather of Medellín, Colombia, Dooney’s perception involves a visual affinity for bright colors, light, and shadow that he uses as part of his artistic language. Although mostly self-taught, his training includes four years of fine art in high school, over four years under the tutelage and guidance of Russian impressionist Irina Kirienko Milton in the Pacific Northwest, and a lifetime of self-discovery through art.
Dooney’s medium of choice is oil because of its body, fluidity, and blending capabilities, which allow for dramatic and energetic impasto works as well as more controlled and detailed pieces using glazed layers and soft blending. However, depending on need and inspiration, he also works with acrylics, ink, charcoal and color pencils.
