Dominick Tascher was born and raised in Bordeaux, France. He discovered his passion for the arts at a young age, always drawing and aspiring to be a car designer or an architect. Growing up in one of the most beautiful cities in France, he was surrounded by history and visual arts. He soon acquired a love for music and paintings.
Tascher’s path led him to become a physician instead of a car designer or architect, but his passion for the arts and painting never left him. Moving to St. Martin with his family in the late 80s, the beauty and colorful culture of the Caribbean inspired him to go back to his easel and start painting again. His journey did not stop there as he relocated to the US in the early 2000s and has lived in Florida since then. Tascher has been a member of the Union Artist Studios, the only organized artists’ studio group in all Southwest Florida, since 2021. Tascher is a self-taught artist, and his work is inspired by different periods like Abstract Expressionism and Street Art. His study of Zen Buddhism has also served as inspiration.
DAAS Co-Op Art Gallery & Gifts is located at 1815 Fowler St. in the Butterfly Estates complex in Fort Myers. The gallery’s business hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. More information about the venue and how to become a member can be found online at daascoop.com or by calling 239-590-8645.
