Did Dontzoff, of Russian descent, comes from a lineage of artists.
From 1973 to 1985, he travels across the world to practice contemporary dancing, before turning to painting in 1985. Bathing in a culture of graffiti, the characters haunting this artist’s imagination are fully awake. Travels as well as music have a primordial influence on the creation process of these beings, at once motionless and living a neverending metamorphosis on the canvas.
Did Dontzoff speaks of stupidity, violence, beauty, hate, love, seriousness, fun, logic and absurdity surrounding us in our daily life. His painting is unhindered. It’s an art freed from the shackles of modern conventions. It’s a whole, a life magic, pure happiness.
