Dima Dmitriev was born in Moscow, Russia, and is the second generation of artists in his family. He moved to Prague, Czech Republic, where he graduated from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design. Dmitriev’s paintings represent forms of visual paradise. The artist intends to evoke not only a simple radiant happiness, that we all aspire towards, but also the hidden complexity of life. These remarkable works are made with a palette knife, extracting colour, light, and texture. Depth and color saturation is achieved by using black, rather than the traditional white canvas. The paintings are composed of monochromatic themes or lush brights such as poppy reds. He has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Europe, North America, and Asia and work may be found in the permanent collection of modern art, the Museum Kampa, Prague. Corporate collections include AT&T, United States; Vodafone, UK, and AWD Holding AG, Germany. Work is held in various international private collections in the Czech Republic, Spain, Germany, Russia, Switzerland, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Australia, Qatar, the United States, and the Dominican Republic.
