Dimitri A. Kozyrev


In the recent “Lost Edge” series, artist Dimitri A. Kozyrev experiments with fragmenting, constructing and rearranging pictorial space. The artist says that the abstracted series is a contemplation on the Avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century Soviet Union, such as Malevich, Rodchenko and Lissitzky. The artist explores the role of these artists and uses the events of that time period to better understand the current state of military and artistic affairs. Kozyrev attended the Ohio State University for his B.F.A. in painting and received his M.F.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara. The artist has completed solo exhibitions at the Gulf Coast Museum of Art in Largo, Florida, the Cirrus Gallery in Los Angeles and the Scope Art Fair in New York City. Kozyrev also attended the Art Omi Residency and is the recipient of the Levitan Fellowship at the University of California.
