“I never studied classical drawing, but painting has always been my passion, and I remember always trying to convey the image as realistically as possible. I prefer realism as a style of art; admire the work of Michelangelo, da Vinci. For me, art is when the concept of peace is clear, the picture must be realistic,” says Krestniy.
Working in the technique of hyperrealism, Dmitry honed his own unique style. His paintings are recognizable. Krestniy says female images inspire him. “I am focused on femininity, beauty, and fragility of woman body and soul. For me, a woman is a most beautiful creation of God,” says the artist.
