Open Studio with Dimithry Victor during FREE Starry Nights

DimithryWithArtwork
 Join us for a special Starry Nights on July 11 from 4 – 6:30 pm. Artist-in-residence, Dimithry Victor will open his studio in the Museum. Stop by to chat with the artist and view his works-in-progress.


About the artist: 
Dimithry Victor has been a dedicated artist from a young age. Inspired by cartoons and comic books, he initially developed a love for character creation, but as he matured, he began to infuse his own experiences and emotions into his art. This drive for self-expression has solidified his path as a professional artist.
A native of Haiti, he relocated to the United States as a child, bringing with him a wealth of cultural experiences from his upbringing in Miami. These experiences continue to inspire and inform his work, which seeks to shed light on the experiences of marginalized communities.
Drawing influence from the great expressionist masters, Victor’s work seamlessly blends realism with unique and often humorous content, utilizing a bright color palette and strong narrative to create captivating works of art. Spanning from classical portrait setups to quirkier narrative pieces, his work seamlessly blends elements of portraiture, cartoons, and abstraction to create a visual representation of non-physical emotional states.


All Day Mini Muse
