Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Dmitri Annenkov

Dmitri Annenkov

''The painting rises from the brush strokes as a poem rises from the words.
The meaning comes later.''

Joan Miro

Dmitri Annenkov was born in Moscow, Russia in 1965 and graduated from the Academy of Arts (formerly the Institute of Arts) with the highest honors. He has been a member of the Moscow Union of Artists for many years.

Annenkov’s exemplary credentials and early successes earned him permanent exhibitions at galleries in Paris on the Rue St. Germain and in the United States. He has also been honored with one-man shows in Russia, Germany and Scandinavia.

His style of painting has evolved through the years, and he now favors Realism that follows the best tradition of both Russian and Western European Photo Realism with a hint of Impressionism.

With great skill and patience, Annenkov develops his time-consuming compositions that appear deceptively simple but are actually quite complicated. He has a remarkable ability to take a two-dimensional canvas and create objects that are so lifelike that time after time people are drawn to touch his paintings, only to find out what they likely already knew; the objects in the paintings are not real!

Annenkov is a connoisseur of art. With the skill of a master he blends his designs with colors and textures, creating a balance between animate and still forms. His wonderful use of light brings his treasured mementoes to life and gives the viewer a glimpse of Annenkov the man.

Ever progressing as an artist and seeking to improve his already significant talent are motivations driving him to the next level. He is not satisfied with what others already consider to be great.
