Yelena Dyumin is a professional artist and art educator who has spent decades perfecting her craft, honing a style full of whimsical humor, textural sensitivity and a vibrant sense of color. At the heart of Dyumin’s art and serving as a constant source of inspiration are her rich artistic experiences.
After moving to Sydney, Australia in 2005, Dyumin began blending her European experiences and classical style with the strong colors and energy reflected in Australian life and nature. This approach inspires her characteristically original and harmonious artwork to bridge both cultural experiences.
Her clients love her work because of her uncanny ability to illustrate the exceptional beauty of everyday life. She always aims to impart a deep emotional connection between objects and human beings and to illustrate the synthesis between Eastern and Western art, the figurative and the abstract, the real and the imaginary.
What sets Dyumin apart as an artist is mastery of such a large and diverse range of artistic techniques. Her finely tuned mix media techniques merge numerous art forms like acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, pencil, pen and ink, graphite, charcoal, etching, lithography, and xylography.
Yelena Dyumin was educated at Omsk State University, Russia, where she graduated with First Class Honours and a Master of Fine Arts (Painting). After graduating, she lectured in Fine Arts at the same university, while completing an Advanced Master Course in Fine Arts at Repin State Academic Institute for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St. Petersburg, as well as a Professional Fine Arts Master Class at V.I. Surikov Moscow State Academic Art Institute.
Her work has been featured in prominent art galleries and exhibitions throughout Russia, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Australia. An inspirational teacher, she also runs two art classes specializing in imparting a grasp of depth, tone and awareness of light in subjects to her students.
Above all, Dyumin is meticulous with her work, valuing quality over quantity in her practice, something that is reflected in piece she creates. I absolutely love them! Check them out!
