Icon of Dmitry Solunsky (2019)
I graduated from the Art and Industrial School named after V. M. Vasnetsov and the Moscow State Institute of Culture. I got acquainted with the art of mosaic in 2008, which fascinated me and became a favorite activity. I have been working in this technique for more than 10 years. The most favorite I find for myself is the creation of micromosaics.
Why mosaic? I really like the material: glass, smalt, stone. In addition to the color, it also has a texture and this gives another decorative technique that can be used in the work. I really like the creation process, and especially the result. Mosaic works are fascinating, they want to be considered, it is some special magic of influence on the viewer. At first, my work was formed with custom execution, now I am developing creatively and participate in Russian and international competitions and exhibitions, I am a laureate and winner.
