DMITRY ZAKHAROV




Dmitry Zakharov (born 1986 in Moscow) is a media artist based in Cologne and Berlin. His works draw from his aesthetic sense for colours, textures and fabrics which often involve fluids, flashing lights and anatomical shapes.

In his artworks, Zakharov examines the fundamental aspects of humankind in interaction with the digital world that we inhabit. He conveys issues surrounding life and death or space and time, by visualising them through innovative media technologies. Thus, he transforms those very abstract topics into tangible experiences.

The artist’s progressive approach finds its roots in his experience as musician and VJ as well as in his early projects in zoological specimen. His diverse experiences liaise in Zakharov’s works and produce a unique mixture of abstract shapes and organic structures.

“Every innovation or technique can be used for what it is not intended.” Dmitry Zakharov, [2014], RoomsMagazine

Zakharov is an adventurer who explores not just the endless possibilities of digital art but also cultural life, social norms and nature. With his free-spirited mindset he likes to break up conventional methods in order to create new aesthetics.

His work can be found in various spaces and contexts. He creates solo exhibitions, takes part in festivals and collaborates with other artists and musicians.

Furthermore, Zakharov works on commercial assignments. With his unique style, the artist is able to create impactful ways of digital storytelling in a promotional context. In his exceptional approach, he matches his creativity with his customers’ visions so as to achieve captivating results.

However, Zakharov’s works are not restricted to computer screens solely - his work enters and experiments with physical space. His large scale projects shape exhibition spaces on trade fairs, set the stages of TV shows and have been projected on public buildings in the past. Through tangible impressions evoked by installations, projections and the use of Augmented and Virtual Reality techniques, his art captivates its recipients’ visual senses.
