About Art Dmitry

Dmitry Korman is a Russian artist and naturalized Swiss, born and educated in St Petersburg.

Welcome to the world of stunning realism – portraits, murals on walls or ceilings, and paintings on canvas, all done by the artist Dmitry Korman.

Some artworks presented here are bespoke (most portraits and all murals are), some are created to be exhibited and sold.

All artwork you see here is hand-painted in the centuries-old style of classical realism: no technology or modern tricks of any kind is ever used. Though the subjects may be contemporary (cars and other attributes of our century seen on canvas), the method of painting never is.

Dmitry’s portraits capture the very essence of his subject, the resemblance is always absolute – and portrait is known to be the most challenging of subjects for a painter. Portraits are often included in his murals if that be the customer's wish.

Murals don't always have to be painted directly on the wall: canvas can be stretched on the wall in the artist's studio, painted, then rolled and shipped anywhere in the world, or delivered personally by the artist.

Please feel free to contact Dmitry for a quote of a bespoke artwork, or for the price of a ready artwork.
