Dmitry Yuzefovich’s charming, intimate and curated compositions often seem hauntingly familiar. His realistic paintings tell a story—this one of a bedroom featuring an unmade single bed—the duvet is rumpled, a book lays open, a reading lamp, glasses and an old-fashioned Underwood typewriter sits on the worn wood floor.
The colour palette is earthy—dark green, brown, black and gray highlighted by crisp white and deep red.
“My work is all about representation of memory. I frequently represent environments in which I lived in the past or attempt to catch the memory of living in them.” Dmitry Yuzefovich
He 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.
