About Cup of Coffee and Typewriter

The exquisitely detailed oil paintings of Dmitry Yuzefovich often look hauntingly familiar. The Ukranian born artist takes great care in rendering specific objects that recall a memory and a place. In this piece, a cup of coffee, a red lamp, a blue fan and an old-fashioned typewriter sit on a soft green painted desk. Handwritten notes and faded letters appear on a neutral-coloured dilapidated wall behind it.

“ I frequently represent environments in which I lived in the past or attempt to catch the memory of living in them.” Dmitry Yuzefovich

Born in Ukraine, Yuzefovich obtained a BFA from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israel in 2000 and an MFA in 2005. He moved to Canada with his family in 2015 and lives in Nova Scotia. Yuzefovich has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions. His paintings have been collected in Israel, Canada, the US, England and Europe.
