BIOGRAPHY

 

A celebrated artist by the age of 15, Dimitra Milan’s extraordinary paintings can be found in private collections across the U.S. and Europe. Born into a family of established artists, Dimitra has been developing her style and ability from a very young age at the Milan Art Institute in Arizona, founded by her parents, Elli and John Milan. Whimsical and surreal, Dimitra expresses herself through rich color and bold designs. Her paintings reflect a dreamy world where anything is possible and fearless subjects harmoniously coexist.  Her original art can be found in fine art galleries in Arizona and Hawaii.

 

Giving back to charitable causes continues to be an important part of Dimitra’s work as an emerging artist. Her paintings are regularly donated to non-profit organizations that advocate against human trafficking and "Comfy Cozies 4 Chemo" which provides assistance to families and children with cancer. Through an intensive home school program, Dimitra graduated 2-years early from high school, allowing her to focus full-time on her art career. Dimitra currently lives in Arizona with her family, and travels regularly to Hawaii and international destinations to experience the world and gain new inspirations.  When Dimitra isn’t traveling, she can be found at home outside of Phoenix either painting in her studio, or riding her horse in the picturesque Southwest outdoors.

TECHNIQUE 

 

Dimitra has mastered several techniques for both her classic oil pieces and her bold mixed media oil paintings.  All of her oil paintings embody rich, dark colors and stylized brush strokes.  She uses subtractive tools to develop the highlights of every piece, bringing the form to life.  After allowing the initial layer of paint to dry, Dimitra then adds more paint and layers creating different effects and textures; some elements are left abstract and others are rendered more realistically.

 

Dimitra’s mixed media oil painting receive the same thoughtfull treatment, only with several additional elements and mediums.  Some include layering different papers on the canvas, creating one-of-a-kind characteristics and a collage effect.  On others, she may be inspired to add acrylic or spray paint.
