About Me

I am Dima Kashtalyan. I live and work in Minsk, Belarus.

My passion for painting started with font graffiti. As time went on, I became interested in characters and full-fledged design. I started to try different techniques. Today, I paint on the walls, paper, canvas, create computer graphics, but anyway I prefer real painting. Now I am mostly focused on black-and-white detailed ink drawing and graffiti. At some point, I understood that, as an author, I am responsible for the meaning and the quality of my artworks that many people see. Since then I am trying to improve from work to work and put a positive message into each of them. I wish my art to make our world better. I want people to look around and think.
