About Artist:

Education: Bachelor of Visual Art, Muchina College of Industrial Art in St. Petersburg, Russia 1988 - 1992

After 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. 

Who is Mr. Matkovsky now, a musician, a freelance writer, artist or a yoga instructor?
