Dima FATUM is an Ukrainian street artist / muralist.

 

Every his mural needs to be explained, because he creates his artworks based on a historical or/and philosophical context of city/area/country.

 

His artworks are characterized by a unique experiments with different artistic styles and genres. Basically it is: surrealism and the "double" images (optical illusions). Also he is the propagandist of post-graffiti and abstract graffiti styles.

He began his creative career in 2000. Dmytriy (real name of FATUM) has graduated art school. Having practiced his art on the street for ten years, he began to exhibit his canvases in the galleries. His artworks are exhibited in Pinchuk Art Centre, Lavra Gallery, in “Museum of street art” in Saint-Petersburg, and also many others of them are in his CV.

 

Certainly, Dmitry's practice of street art is not inferior to his institutional activities. Over time, his artworks in urban space are gradually becoming “legalized” and mowed to the territory of muralism and municipal aesthetic vision.
