Art by Dima.

If you live in a metropolitan city, you’ve surely seen the art of Dima on the streets.  Perhaps you were not familiar with his name, but it’s nearly impossible to miss his iconic images that feature unforgettable phrases such as “Tom Selleck Saved My Baby,” “Fuck You I’m Batman,” “Your Baby is a Dickhead,” “Carl Sagan is an Asshole” or “Down With The Reptilian Agenda,” just to name a few.  As you are about to discover, Dima is much more than just a street artist.  He is a singer and musician who regularly shows his art in galleries as well as on the streets.  Meet Dima, the man behind the great art.

According2G: Tell us a little bit about your background.

Dima: I was born in Moscow but my family moved to New York when I was one because my father worked for the UN and got offered a position here. I grew up in a Russian household and went to a Russian speaking school in the Bronx until I was 11 years old. I started going to an English speaking school after that.  We moved from the Bronx to Manhattan in 1993. I was always drawing as a kid and kept on doing it through high school where I took advanced placement art classes and began to paint. I was never a great student in anything else and decided early on to try to have a career as an artist. I went to Parsons School Of Design from 1999-2003 and I have a BFA in Illustration. I’ve had a stable of boring office jobs for a number of years after college and kinda put art on the back burner for a while.  About five years ago I got sick of working a 9-5 job and decided to really give painting my full attention to try to avoid doing work that I didn’t enjoy. I also work as an illustrator and have been very lucky to work with great people who trust me to do whatever I want, usually.

I Heart Global Warming

I love it when I am casually walking down the street and I see fresh stuff from the artists I love!  Today was my lucky day as I came across two new works from Dimitri Drjuchin, who you might recall from earlier posts, designed the brilliant “Tom Selleck Saved My Baby,” “Carl Sagan Is An Asshole,” and “Fuck You, I’m Batman” stickers that I always smile at when I pass along the mean city streets of New York.

Carl Sagan is an Asshole.

I don’t necessarily agree with this sticker that I saw on the streets of New York, but it sure made me laugh.  I hope it does the same for you.  I never had the pleasure of meeting Carl Sagan, so tell us about your encounters with him.  Do you think the street artists are jealous that Carl Sagan published over 600 scientific papers and 20 books in his lifetime? RIP Carl.
