Spirosart's Profile Picture
Dmitri Spiros
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Dmitri Spiros
(born November 11, 1971) is a Russian contemporary impressionist artist.
Spiros was born in Tashkent, in one of the former USSR republics, and lived there until 1998. From 1998 through 2010, Spiros lived with his family in Russia, in the city of Samara. Spiros currently resides in the popular resort city of Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
The subjects of his paintings are mostly city scenes, genre paintings, the sea, flowers, and portraits. Most of Dmitri Spiros's paintings are created using the medium of the palette knife, oils, and acrylic paint. Spiros is constantly finding new themes, subjects and creative approaches to use.
Earlier Years
Dmitri comes from a family with Greek roots. From ancient times onward there has formed a small Greek population in the Southern part of Russia on the shores of the Black Sea.
As a result of a well known political events of 1917, part of Spiros's family was forced to leave Russia and return to Greece. Dmitri’s grandparents stayed in Soviet territory, however, and under the threat of repressions and deportation, lived on, preserving their native language and culture. Spiros's grandparents spoke Greek, Turkish and Russian.
Dmitri's parents grew up in one such Greek town on the shores of the Black sea, where Dmitri frequently vacationed in his early years, spending his time painting and drawing sketches. Throughout his childhood Spiros drew a lot, putting together exhibitions full of inspiration without difficulty, and showing a particular interest in studying the work of the French Impressionists
Years of Education
In 1993, having completed a term of military service, Dmitri studied art, graduating with honors after 5 years. Even during Dmitri's first year in school, he set up his first exhibition and sold many works with great success. At the same time, Dmitri also taught painting and worked as a designer for the British and American tobacco giant BAT.
Dmitri proved to be a very motivated and hardworking student at the art school. Due to his academic success, Dmitri received a merit based scholarship named after P.P. Benkov, which doubled the amount of his student stipend. Working many hours a day, he acquired the knowledge and methods that later would become a foundation for his creative endeavors. While being a student and participating in many art shows, Dmitri also created paintings on buildings, thus getting experienced in the genre of monumental painting and murals, also creating decorations for city celebrations and being commissioned for numerous portrait orders.
Dmitri also suffered from discrimination towards his Greek roots from the local Russian population, and in accordance with his love of discovering new things and creating new goals for himself, he made the decision to move with his family to Russia in 1999.
Since moving his paintings would require paying an enormous amount of duties, Dmitri just left them behind in his studio. The fate of these paintings is unknown.
He also participated in many art shows held in Tashkent.
Creative Years
In 2000, a new creative period started in the life of Dmitri Spiros. But the paintings he created during his first few years in Russia did not bring commercial success and often the money received from their sales were barely enough to buy new canvas and paint.
During this time period, he created a lot of work influenced by the French school, keeping his mind on artists such as van Gogh, Gaugin, Degas, Sisley, Renoir, Monet, and also the Russian Impressionists of the IXX-XX centuries, and creating his own personal artistic language, based on his own perception of the world. On his canvases, Dmitri seemed to be molding out his shapes, following his creative plan. The master found his own signature style, his own technique, which made his paintings fully 3-dimensional and multilayered,

Personal Life
In 1992, before entering art school, Dmitri met his future wife Ana, a ceramic artist. In 2000 his daughter Elizaveta was born and in 2009 their son Mikhail was born.

Career in Design
Between 2000 and 2005, Dmitri Spiros worked as a designer for food giant NESTLE, developing packaging for chocolates, and also doing package design for many Russian food companies. At this time Dmitri also traveled extensively in the country side, making sketches.
In 2008 Spiros collaborated with major publisher AGNI to create postcards and posters. Today posters of Dmitri’s paintings decorate the walls of many hospitals, offices and trade centers in Samara. A line of souvenir products based on pictures by Spiros is being manufactured.
In the same year, Dmitri traveled in Europe, frequently on foot with an easel behind his shoulders. He painted many landscapes near the German town of Baden Baden and its surroundings. In Strasburg, he made sketches of the old town, and in the ancient towns of Croatia he worked from morning till nighttime on his art.

Different challenges frequently forced Dmitry to seek new grounds for their creative activities. In 2011 Dmitri Spiros and his family came to Mexico and settled in Cancun, having fallen in love with the beauty of Mexican beaches, the warm Caribbean Sea and the area's rich archeological heritage. This environment, so perfect for creative work, and the diversity of its colors inspired Dmitri to spend most of the time painting.
The work of Dmitri Spiros, and his participation in several charity auctions, continue to attract more and more attention. His paintings are purchased by collectors and people who appreciate art and want to make an investment, because he is undoubtedly one of the most popular contemporary artists.
Today Spiros is one of the few artists who despite creating a lot of disputes regarding his art, is well loved and appreciated by the public. His paintings are in private collections in many countries of the world.
