Puredomo AKA Dorothy Mombrun

Dorothy Mombrun is an art director, photographer, cultural facilitator and podcaster based in Montreal, Quebec.
The Haitian-Canadian artist began photography in 2016. Mombrun likes to compliment her subjects – very often black women and femmes–with bold colours and vibrant contrasts of shadow and light. This artistic signature comes to her from a long journey towards accepting her identity as a black woman in her environment, Dorothy Mombrun believes in the importance of presenting black femininity in a way that uplifts her people and demystifies negative images conveyed by the media. 

Her bold artistic signature allowed her to curate her first exhibition, Aynalem: l'Oeil du Monde at the Centre d'Art Diane Dufresne in early 2022. Following this exhibition, Mombrun is now diving into the world of cultural mediation and now facilitates conversations about art and activism through a Black and intersectional lens.

In 2020, Mombrun Co-founded the art collective, Atelier Ali, with two colleagues. They created this art collective to democratize access to artistic resources and creative networks in the Montreal creative scene. Atelier Ali aims to connect emerging QTBIPOC artists together through artistic projects and events. 
Dorothy Mombrun is also the co-host of the French literary podcast Mots-à-Mots and of That Feminist Podcast. She frequently appears as a guest in arts and culture podcasts to talk about her expertise and perspective. 

Mombrun is also an entrepreneurship coach with the Fusion Jeunesse Program and has been mentoring and coaching the youth since 2019. 

She is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Art in the faculty of journalism at Concordia University.
