Alexander Dyomkin (Dyoma21)

(born 1994, Shilovo, Ryazan Region)

Alexander Dyomkin (Dyoma21) started with graffiti in 2007. Representing a “new generation” of Russian urban contemporary artists Dyoma21 was inspired by artworks of Marat Morik, Dmitri Aske and Andrey Berger who were at that time actively developing the urban culture in Russia.

In 2010-s Alexander studied agricultural machine operations at the local college in his birthplace of Shilovo village 200 kilometers away from Moscow. At the same time he was actively involved in graffiti and self-studied the basics of fine art. After graduation he moved to a larger town of Ryazan where he received an art degree studying academic drawing and painting. Unique combination of professional life experience in Russian village and art education with a remaining focus towards graffiti art scene together with undisputed talent and scrupulous attitude to every artwork he is producing rapidly put Dyoma21 under the radar of a wide range of art lovers: from unenlightened spectators to art institutions and auction houses. With all that Dyoma21 remains well-respected inside the closed graffiti community which is a rare case for the artist focused on realism and portraits.

A practical understanding of life in the village far away from Moscow is brightly reflected in the pieces by Alexander Demkin. The main characters of his works are the Russia villagers and citizens of small towns. Dyoma21 highlights these people in the context of everyday life and represent them as strong personalities with unique inner worlds unfolding in the process of getting to know more pieces by the artist.

Since 2020, Dyoma21 has been creating a series of artworks rethinking the Soviet past, which he did not formally was a part to, but which retained a strong influence on the process of his growing as a person. The series starts with the outdoor piece “Pioneer Tie” made on the walls of one of the abandoned buildings in Ryazan and continues with the canvas “Drum Roll”, created by the author for the Zhavner Auction.
