Dmitry writes about his paintings: "I am an artist of the late 20th - early 21st centuries, who absorbed the richest previous experience in the development of fine art and philosophy, including postmodernism.
I call my style abstract eclecticism. Saturation of the plane of the painting with a variety of pictorial techniques, and textures, coupled with an expressive, dynamic compositional structure allows me to create the unique multi-dimensional world."

Art critic's comment

The first thing that attracts Dmitry Strelkov's works is the abundance of color. He, as if in a kaleidoscope, creates geometric illusion patterns with only one color. Colors multiply, creating new facets, or dissolving in the space of the painting.

When perceiving paintings, one feels as if vibrations are filled with an inner rhythm. Dmitry says: "Just think how painting and music in a strange, incomprehensible way excite our feelings, make the most secret strings of the soul sound". 

Dmitry Strelkov's works combine various artistic techniques. Thanks to this, his paintings look impressive both from afar and from close range. Dynamic compositional structure and various textures allow the artist to create a unique multidimensional world with its subtle philosophical meanings contained in each individual work.
