Dmitrii Filimonov-Artist

Born in January 25, 1997

Dmitrii Filimonov was born in Russia, in a small village in the Ulyanovsk region. At age 14 he moved to the city of Ulyanovsk and entered the College of Arts and Culture and studied landscape design.
In 2016, he moved to Moscow. In 2022 he graduated from the department of monumental and decorative painting of the Moscow State Academy of Art named after Stroganov.

In his work, Dima turns to the content of personality. He explores internal conflicts, personality disorders and self-identity. Dima works mainly in the technique of painting (acrylic, oil, canvas).
Dima's work is associated with the aesthetics of clowns and the circus. All of his characters are dressed in bright, awkward costumes. For him it is a way to escape from incomprehensible and chaotic reality into the world of his own fantasies, where there are no rules invented by society and social stigmatization.All the characters in his works have no gender, they are gender neutral.Here the artist controls an imaginary reality, although with a touch of sadness.
A traumatic childhood and the death of his parents at an early age forced him to invent his own very bright world. It has room for colorful expression of feelings, whether he is experiencing happiness or sadness.
