Dominic Pangborn is a Korean-American artist and graphic designer. Dominic Pangborn was born in Chungcheong Prolee Province, Korea, in 1952 during the Korean War. Pangborn never met his father, an American serviceman. He lived with his mother, a Korean villager, for the majority of his childhood. At the age of 10, Pangborn’s mother sent him to the United States with Catholic missionaries in the hope that he would have an easier life. In America, he was adopted by the Pangborn family and spent the duration of his adolescent years with them and his 11 siblings in Jackson, Michigan. He attended Lumen Christi High School.
Pangborn graduated from Lumen Christi High School, in Jackson, Mich., then at his father’s suggestion, decided to pursue an education in art. He studied at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, where he majored in graphic design. He attended the Syracuse University Illustrators Workshop and served later as a professor at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. He received an Honorary Doctorate from Detroit’s Marygrove College.
Pangborn shifted his focus to fine art in 2007 using various media, including painting and sculpting. Pangborn’s 40-foot work “Baseball in Motion” is displayed at the Miami Marlins Park, and his art-in-motion “Stations of the Cross” hangs in the Father Solanus Casey Center at the St. Bonaventure Monastery in Detroit, where he has worked to aid fundraising efforts of the monastery's soup kitchen. In 2012, he was featured in an hour-long Korean television special called "Global Success."
In July 2014, he opened a three-month-long, 60-piece retrospective exhibit of his design and art career at the Ella Sharp Museum of Art and History in Jackson, Mich.
His fine art work has been published in Playboy magazine and is collected and sold around the world through Park West Gallery.
He says his greatest influences are Joseph Mallard William Turner and Leonardo da Vinci.
