KOZYREV, Dimitri

Creator

KOZYREV, DIMITRI
b. Russia, 1967
Dimitri Kozyrev lives and works in Salt Lake City, Utah. He received his BFA from Ohio University in 1997 and his MFA from UC Santa Barbara in 2000. Having been born and raised in Leningrad, U.S.S.R., his paintings consider the covert and overt remains of war and trauma on landscapes, while also nodding towards the capacity for our landscapes—and hence us—to heal. Kozyrev’s style is characterized by dynamic bursts of color and by Modernist and Constructivist arrangements of space. His work has been displayed in solo exhibitions in Modern West, The Mark Moore Gallery, Cirrus Gallery, and Perception Gulf Coast Museum of Art, and he has been featured in The L.A. Times, The Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, and Artweek, among others. In addition to producing art, he has served as a Lecturer at UC Santa Barbara and as a Professor of Painting at the University of Arizona.
