Dimitry Melman is a Winnipeg-based visual artist whose recent practice has been concentrated upon the delivery of mosaic classes, workshops, and commissions, and the creation of oil paintings and oil/mosaic mixed media works. His contemporary approach is rooted in classical training, having been educated in the disciplines of drawing and painting as a youth in Moscow, Russia.
Over the years Dimitry has gained extensive experience in teaching art to people of all ages, particularly through mosaic workshops and classes (offered in his home studio - ‘Studio on Strathcona’, the Manitoba K-12 school system, the Winnipeg Art Gallery Studio Programs, and other avenues). His artistic practice lends itself to involving people, especially those that do not have artistic experience or inclination. He takes a very hands-on approach, and always strives to make art accessible and meaningful. For Dimitry, art is about the process: art is created “one piece at a time.”
