My name is Daria Dmitrieva and I was born on 31 st of January, 1989 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Both of my parents are architects; hence I had been exposed to the world of art since my early childhood. As long as I can remember myself I always had a passion for the fine art and decoration. Since I was six, I had been participating in the art competitions and showing my work at the exhibitions. In 1996, I went to a school for the foreign languages advanced studies. While studying French at the school, I fell in love with France and its culture. In 2006, I entered Southern Federal University of Russia, Institute of Architecture and Arts, Faculty of Decorative Art and Textile. During my six-year study at the University, I had been refining my drawing and painting skills, participating in the art competitions and exhibitions. I had also been travelling extensively getting inspiration for arts. During that time, I met Vladimir Kikel, a renowned Russian artist. I started taking Vladimir Kikel’s classes on oil painting and Levkas techniques. While learning from Vladimir, I had been developing my own concept and oil painting techniques. In 2012, I was accepted into the University of Lyon, France to study Fashion and Creative Arts. While at school, I continued to devote a lot of time to my passion for oil painting on canvas. In 2013, I was able to fulfil my longtime dream of moving to Paris where I continue to live and work at this time. During the past several years, I had been working in the in the field of fashion and textile patterns design, participating in the furnishing textile exhibitions. Since 2016, I had been focusing more on the acrylic painting and produced a series of still-life paintings on the black background. Also, in 2017, I started trying my hand at the abstract art. At this time, I work on a new series of the acrylic paintings in the abstract genre.
