Works of great Russian artists, French painting and Chinese culture have formed Dmitri’s aesthetic principles of fine arts, harmony of colors makes a professional point of his painting. While painting a flower or a tree a Chinese artist feels like merging with nature. In this Dmitri feels a creative power.
His life might have been different if it where not for the chance that tied him with Vietnam forever Vietnam is unforgettable for its generous exotic nature and its peculiar way of life. Dmitry came in contact with this wonderful land being 17 years old and could hardly free himself from its charm.
