Artist Makes Vibrant Portraits of Humans and Animals

Dimitri Sirenko is a Vancouver, Canada-based painter best known for his portraits of humans and wildlife. According to his personal website, Sirenko works primarily in acrylic, and “captures the essence of personality in his works relying on his own imaginative perception as well as photo reference.”

The artist who graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design with a major in animation, first worked as an art director in the animation and video game industries. After almost a decade being in that industry, he decided to make traditional painting as his new career.

“For Dimitri, art is a language that can communicate on both conscious and subconscious levels which is why aesthetic execution of his art is a big part of making that language more accessible for a wider range of audiences,” it says on his personal website.

Except for his personal website, you can find the artist’s paintings on his social media accounts, Instagram, and Facebook. He also showcases his artwork on his Etsy store where you can purchase some of his vibrant paintings.
