Dmitry Iv has had an impressive and successful artistic career, finding his work shown in museums, exhibitions, and permanent installations across the globe. The Ukrainian artist and sculptor wants his work to encourage the viewer into sincere contemplation, be it of the subject or of the emotional connection it inspires within them. He begins with a rough idea, then chooses a material and technique. The idea is at the center of importance for him, as his work often interrogates or reflects politics, religion, and significant global experiences. However, he feels it is important for his work not to reflect culture, but to reflect a lack of culture that occurs in humanity, from vices to indignity.
