About

Currently living in Poland, the 35-year-old Belarusian artist Dima, whether through his illustrations or street art, consistently showcases a unique style that is both wild and refined. He categorizes his art as pointillism or stippling, a technique that uses hand-drawn dots as the smallest units of an artwork.

What Dima wants to say in his work is closely tied to issues of modern society and individual life. He cleverly picks familiar everyday objects as the main subject matters of his work to evoke symbolic qualities and resonances. For example, he might depict a fox with a city growing out of its head or a bird carrying a turtle shell on its back. This approach not only invites viewers to think about the meaning of the work, but also creates dramatic visual impact. 

Dimension wise, he prefers to work on large canvases. This allows him to meticulously refine every detail so that even up close, viewers can appreciate the precision and depth of his work. Dima’s work is not just visual pleasures but also intellectual feasts, with each piece whispering profound insights into the world.
