‘Painting is not what I do; it is who I am.’
Artwork is, by its very nature, a by-product of the way we think and feel.
Hi, I’m Yelena Dyumin, both a professional artist and art educator. The creation and refinement of my unique style has been something I've spent decades perfecting my craft and unique style with its whimsical humor, textural sensitivity and vibrant sense of color. Although I’m a current resident of Sydney, Australia, I was born and raised in Omsk, Russia. As a result of this mixed culture, my aim has been to blend my eclectic background in European art, experiences, and classics with the fresh Australian colors of both life and nature I’ve come to find.
I’m most passionate about painting and drawing and have been involved with the two since childhood. I've always loved the experience of losing myself in thought and diving into the world of art and imagination. This creative introspection allows me to produce art that is not only beautiful, but one-of-a-kind. I've been told again and again that this uncanny ability to illustrate the exceptional beauty of everyday life is what makes my artwork lovable.
Throughout my career, I've accumulated a vast repertoire of artistic techniques that have allowed me to better illustrate my intentions as an artist. My aim is to create unforgettable works and impart a deep emotional connection between objects and human beings whenever I begin a new piece. As a result, most of my work conveys the synthesis between Eastern and Western art, the figurative and the abstract, and the real and imaginary.
