Dimitra Milan is a young, emerging artist making her way into the fine art scene in Europe, Hawaii and on the U.S. mainland. Born into a family of artists, she has been painting and refining her style from a very young age while attending her parents art institute in Arizona. By the age of 16, Dimitra completed an accelerated home school program allowing her to paint full time. Dimitra spends most of her time between Europe, Arizona and Hawaii, drawing inspiration from her surroundings. Her paintings often depict a dreamlike state where humans and wild animals harmoniously coexist inspiring her audience to believe anything is possible.
Dimitra’s style is bold, unique and extremely involved. Her artistic process always begins by drawing a loose sketch of the subject onto textured canvas. After the sketch is complete, her next steps become specific to the final envisioned painting.
For mixed media oil, Dimitra begins by layering different papers directly on the sketched canvas creating one-of-a-kind characteristics and a collage effect. At this stage, she may be inspired to use spray paint or add acrylic elements. For an oil on canvas piece, Dimitra will add transparent colors in oil paint staining the drawing.
After working over the initial sketch for both oil and mixed media, Dimitra uses subtractive tools to develop the highlights bringing the form to life. Rich, dark colors and stylized brush strokes are then thoughtfully intermixed to her work in progress. When the painting is dry, she adds more paint and layers creating different effects and textures; some elements are left abstract and others are rendered more realistic.
Dimitra’s bold, breathtaking paintings can be found in top galleries and call home to exclusive private collections. Her library consists of original oil on canvas, mixed media oil on canvas, limited edition giclee and fine art matted paper prints.
