West Osceola Library
Open Area
Florida artist Dominic DaSylva is a self-taught artist. He creates sculptures, mold making for reproductions, model dioramas, miniatures, props, and mixed media art forms. His artwork has been reproduced in art prints, album covers, magazines and other publications. DaSylva's art is collected internationally by a wide range of enthusiasts.

"Growing up around art I've touched on many mediums, I find collage to be the most fun and free and I love the effect it has. My art is made up of thousands of tiny recycled magazine pieces to create fun and amazing imagery. Anything I can imagine or see, I can make. That’s what I like about art."
