Dmitrijs Lavrentjevs


I want to leave the light after myself, so people would think where does it come from


Works of Dmitry Lavrentyev are individual. Whether it is painting, lithography, collage or sculpture – it is passionate impulsiveness and psychological tension fixation where intuition and the subconscious level is a primordial impulse, a mystical, magical power. Juicy, intense color contrasts, "ferocious" thick strokes and demonstratively sloppy, vibrating sharp line is important in his original style. Sometimes his characters are grotesque sometimes - spiritual, but always - surprisingly easy and ironic.


Autodidact, under the impact of St. Petersburg artists turned to painting.


Member of the Association of Latvian Artists since 1999.

Paintings are held in private collections in Russia, Latvia, Germany, United Kingdom, Norway, Netherlands, USA, Poland, Belgium, New Zealand, Denmark and Sweden.


Participates in exhibitions since 1995.
