Dmitry Grudsky, Bay Area mosaic artist and art teacher
creates sculptures for private commissions, public art
and community projects. His work is exhibited nationally
and internationally, and has been accepted
into the Society of American Mosaic Artistsí
International Jury Show.
He instructs at the Institute
of Mosaic Art in Oakland
and other Bay Area locations.
Dmitry says of mosaic art:
"Forms found in Nature
such as mountains, water,
trees and animals
inspire my sculptures.
I combine ancient Byzantine
mosaic techniques, stained glass,
mural painting and relief to create art,
that is rich and textural. For me,
sculpture is a three-dimensional poem,
and I express the feelings of people
and place through art.
My mosaics connect people
to their surroundings
in new ways".
