This Fashion Week Domingo Zapata joined together with friends, art enthusiasts, and some of his top collectors to celebrate the launch of his debut novel, The Beautiful Dream of Life, at the Chefs Club Counter in Lower Manhattan.
Guests enjoyed wine, cocktails, and even Domingo’s personal Paella recipe! The night was full of music, ample photo-ops, and the signing of many books for Domingo’s close friends and fans.
The Beautiful Dream of Life is an evocative, immersive, and at times satirical portrait of a renowned contemporary artist who, while grappling with the intersection of his art, his life, and the world he lives in, begins to slip further and further into delusion.
With the satirical edge of Bret Easton Elli’s Glamorama and the diffuse beauty of Huber Selby Jr.’s classic Requiem for a Dream, The Beautiful Dream of Life is at once an ethereal, captivating, and wildly compelling story of hard-edged desire and carnal creativity, from one of the most successful painters of our time.
