Martin Dimitrov

Martin Dimitrov, still life, landscape
Martin Dimitrov is a painter originally from Sofia, Bulgaria and now based in the U.S.

Self-trained as an artist, Dimitrov paints still life, landscape and figures. His still life compositions are subtle and contemplative, with muted value contrasts and restrained colors, often emphasizing the textural appeal of his subjects.

I particularly enjoy his paintings of simple subjects that are, in effect, outdoor still life, even though his close up subjects are actually still living.

Dimitrov has a blog on which he discusses his work and process, such as the setup for painting the grapefruits in the images above (third down) on location.

Martin Dimitrov is represented by Gallery Russia in Scottsdale, AZ.

  2. My favourite ones are the lemons and what looks like the Nevada dessert. A very distinct style, I’d love to have these on my walls. Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. I love quotes as much as art:
    As how to feel fulfilled as an artist

  5. These are really just exquisite. Love the subtle fine details.
