retiring early from a 25 year career in rock music
business he began as a acrylicist and was strongly influenced by such artists as Gustav Klimt,
Maurice Denis, Claude Monet, Paul Cezanne, Edgar Degas.
Since moving to Toronto, Dmitri has migrated from
brush to pouring acrylics, working often with palette
knives to achieve the unique depth and dimension that is
his trademark. He has developed a special love for the
space and silence, shuniya, which are the subject
of many of his works. According to Dmitri, "Silence is
the mother of music where colors are notes."
The artist has become a fixture in the north of Toronto,
where he creates small air sketches and studies that
later form the basis for the majestic space
scenes in acrylic on large 50"x 50" canvases, for
which he is best known.
