Artist Biography

Dmitry Dergunov was born in 1961 in Lipetsk, Russia; currently lives and works in Saint Pertersburg, Russia.

Dergunov had travelled a long experiential way before finding his own individual style. We can find unique properties of Dungerov's art style in laconic and clear drawing, one can even associates his works with the Early Renaissance paintings, also irreproachable feeling of colour and art space allow him to create perfect composition. Special feature of Dergunov's style is art technique; he prefers working with egg tempera. History of this art-technique dates to the dawn of human society and was used by the masters of the Renaissance, among them are Leonardo da Vinci, Andrea Mantegna, Sandro Botticelli etc.. His latest series - "INFINITIVE", is a real world of images that is full of mysteries and screts, And may be if a viewer could decipher them, he/she could answer the questions that exist in our everyday life. (Varvara Frolova art-critic)
