About Us

Our mission is simple; we are creative people who don't mind an all day sesh with a few friends. With Custom Torches we want to support artists and our culture by bringing first class torches together with amazing original artwork.  

 Who is the artist?


Daniel Militonian aka Dunkees was born in Moscow, Russia and immigrated to the United States when he was just 9 years old. Since he was a child, he's had a passion for art, but decided to pursue a career in computer animation. In 2012, he started selling his art on the Venice Beach Boardwalk and quit his day job to be a full time artist. Now as the owner of two galleries, Dunkees feels luck and fortunate to have found his true calling. Want to meet the artist? Most days you can catch him painting live at his Venice Beach gallery.
