Born Nicosia, Cyprus, is a full-time visual artist working in the style of abstract expressionism both in the UK and Cyprus. Dimitri’s work is often characterized by gestural brush-strokes and mark-making, and the impression of spontaneity evokes the aim to make art that while abstract was also expressive or emotional in its effect. Creating swirling and spinning lines, thin and broad, the large canvas‘ resonate a carnival Dionysian festivity. Very often large in scale, my work is at times intense, spontaneous and deeply engaging.
I also have been working for many years on the notion of 'Presence', divine/human presence producing abstract imagery depicting portals or windows or gateways that allow the viewer to enter, be absorbed or contemplate, reflect on others and themselves. This process has been realized from studying and understanding the significance of traditional Greek Orthodox icons.
