Over the course of his career, Dimitri has collected a large number of awards and diplomas, including a silver medal from TCXP (Creative Union of Artists of Russia) for his contribution to the National Arts of his country. He has been a professional artist for more than 10 years and as such took part in a multitude of solo or collective art exhibitions of significant importance in Russia. His work has been curated in various major museums in Moscow, St Peterbourg and other cities, including the State Hermitage Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Decorative, Applied and Folk Arts and the Central House of Artists. Dimitri has recently been curated by the Head of the Russian Art Academy as one of the best artists of his country in an all Russia visiting art exhibition. His artworks are collected by tier one public and private collectors in Russia, China, Germany, France, Austria, Italy, Montenegro and USA. His exhibition with Art for Guernsey will be his first ever solo show not only in the UK but in Western Europe.
Dimitri’s main technique is oil painting. His credo as an artist is to observe and love life. Using the tradition of Russian realistic painting, Dimitri’s art conveys the characteristic features of our reality but also the state of mind of a person. He likes to represent the destinies of people, tired of the big cities, aspiring to nature and the eternal values of ordinary human life. He also likes to bring light to social issues, with an ironic sense of humour, regardless of whether he paints landscapes, portraits or still-lifes.

Dmitry Permyakov is a modern, Russian painter. Dmitry believes his life and creative credo is the ability to observe and love life. The artist’s main technique is oil painting. Using the traditions of Russian realistic painting, D. Permyakov conveys not only the characteristic features of our reality, but also the state of mind of a person. In the center of the pictures he created are the destinies of people, tired of a big city, aspiring to nature and the eternal values of ordinary human life. Socially sounding themes are one of the most important virtues of Dmitry Permyakov’s painting
Dmitriy Permiakov paintings manifest his sense of humor, and lively ironic outsight . Regardless of whether works on landscapes, portraits or still-lifes, the artist strives to bring to light social issues. Be it studies or sketchers , he is intent on paintings , he engages in the quest for a figurative expressivity to be found in vivid composition , in the emotional whirlwind of pastose strokes , and audacious contrasts.
While adhering to the priority of finding solutions to coloristic challenges, Permiakov remains an attentive explorer of what is going on in the indigenous art within the social and cultural framework. One the one hand , his approach of treating paintings as «Russian myth» folklore, and mentality stereotypes . That is why the mesmerizing beauty of his painting technique is no less important than the narrative seen in his portraits of fishermen and street cleaners , and other subjects , like pickerels and steam bath bowls , which are so Russian in their nature.
Behind each Permiakov’s painting , there is a passionate and reverent personality . Such works as «Everything is ok» (2011) , «The road to Childhood» (2012) «Our Yards» reveal a personal attitude to the places depicted . Critical comprehension of reality does not deprive him of the ability to admire everything he sees, so his characters are given the chance to enjoy simple pleasures , such as taking pride in the fish harvest , and manly weekend still lifes featuring wine and vodka. For each log hut , window and fence , the artist finds peculiar and unique features which reflect the plain life , simple way of living , and spirit of their owner.
Dmitry Permyakov regularly participates in many all-Russian exhibitions, organizes various thematic exhibitions, and also holds solo exhibitions. Each exit “to the viewer” takes place with great public resonance and vivid emotional responses.
