Dimitri Desiron (Antwerp, Belgium, September 30, 1971) attended
classical drawing classes between 1983 and 1989 at the Academy of Visual
Arts in Brasschaat near Antwerp, obtained a Master's degree in
translation (French-Spanish-Dutch) in 1994 at the Antwerp Institute for
Translators and Interpreters (currently part of the University of
Antwerp Faculty of Arts) and worked several years as a graphic designer
until he decided to dedicate himself to what he loves most - painting.
In his paintings, he depicts a quiet, introspective world, inspired by
mainly urban but also natural environments with a discrete human
presence. Light is a key element in the choice of his subjects, and his
sense of detail pushes him to an ever ongoing search for hidden beauty
in architectural and natural elements and textures, going from stone
façades and steel constructions to broad and often stark landscapes.
