All of the artists introduced so far in this rubric, I do like a lot. But Dmitry Kustanovich is one of my very favourite – so unique, expressive, lots of texture and essence! Even winter created by his pallet knife looks attractive!
Dmitry Alexandrovich Kustanovich was born March 29, 1970 in Minsk. His nickname is Kust. Dmitry currently resides and works in Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
Kustanovich graduated from the Belarusian State Pedagogical University in 1996, served in the Soviet Army and worked as a construction worker.
Artist has developed an original technique based on the wider use of palette knifes rather than brushes.
“ I model the space with the palette knife expressing its to-day state, its momentousnesses, its current minute. This is my technique. It is emotional. It has its own philosophy. The world expressed through it is manifolded. It is different. ”
His technique has elements of the impressionism, expressionism and conceptual art.
Since 1996 Kustanovich has participated in over 70 personal exhibitions in Minsk, Moscow, Germany, France, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal.
I became familiar with the artist's works when I first saw and fell in love with his butterflies – so light, so vivid….
And tons more butterflies and other wonderful works in this awesome short video. Enjoy!
