Dmitry Zakharov (Moscow, 1986) is a visual artist based in Cologne and Berlin. He is a designer, working on the segments of video and animation. Zakharov expresses himself in graphical ways with clear structures, his compositions are determined by complex and challenging nature.
Zakharov plays around with sound, shapes, colours and textures in a way that is alarmingly complex and structured – but at the same time, he still know how to remain simple. His works astutely combine aesthetics and intent to deliver sleek, rhythmic geometrical shapes that metamorphose into new structures.

In his artworks, Zakharov deals as well with present problems as with themes the human kind is concerned with for centuries. Themes like life, death and the transformation of life forms.
Zakharov combines several techniques to realise his projects,
2D/3D animation and film often melted together.

techniques: 3d animation and Still, liquid simulation, 2d animation, architectural visualisation, compositing, film, print, projection, mapping, live visuals
