About Dmitri

    About Dmitri

    My mission on this planet is to create beauty fueled by love, compassion and interdependence. Sticking to one genre or trying to classify what I create has no value to me. I know that for me, speaking from the heart and letting the art create itself instead of trying to force fixed ideas onto a blank canvas is a critical to speaking my true voice.

    I’m inspired by the beauty of nature and people closest to me. To better pursue my passion and distance myself from distractions, I recently bought a home in the side of a mountain in Cle Elum, WA. It’s been an amazing experience. I have to snowmobile to my cabin in the winter time and my back yard consists of endless trails to explore. I didn’t get put on this planet to live in a hamster wheel lifestyle. I want to seek fulfillment and joy out of every moment and share it with people through my art and music.

    Thank you for being a part of it!

    Artist's Statement

    The longer I grow as an artist, the more I realize that any deviation from my true voice means selling myself short and lying to you. I spent a long time following trends, getting ideas from others, trying to join communities that I don’t fit into… but ultimately the universe keeps redirecting me to speak from the heart and create my truly unique art instead. As the home page says: “Sticking to one genre or trying to classify what I create has no value to me. I know that for me, speaking from the heart and letting the art create itself instead of trying to force fixed ideas onto a blank canvas is a critical to speaking my true voice.”

    Most of the tools I use to create my art are built from the ground up from my machine for cutting acrylic sheet to the lampworking torch for my glass pieces and the cutting tools I use on my wood lathe. I hope to spend the rest of my life pushing the limits and blending new technologies I come up with to make it different.

    What makes my art unique is my ability to blend multiple mediums (both physical and digital) with elements I learned in engineering and technology. I can’t say that I’m a master of wood work, glass lampwork, paint, sculpture, technology or engineering but what I can say is that I excel at making those things work together in unison. Because I’ve been able to get in tune with myself and learn to think outside the box, I have been able to create not just a unique form of art, but a unique method for creating it and I hope to keep working on sharing it with you until I no longer can.
