Dima Rebus was born in a small town in Russia in 1988 and graduated from art school in Moscow in 2011. He now works on a wide range of projects ranging from his personal artwork to illustrations for magazines and other publishing houses. He was featured in Hi-Fructose Magazine entitled “Dima Rebus Portrays Urban Life in Unsettling Watercolors”. Here, he painted subdued watercolors of urban life as envisioned by his subjects. Another project of his was for the film Saints & Strangers which was aired on the National Geographic Channel and premiered last November 2015. Saints & Strangers is an American drama television 2-part miniseries. It’s a story of the Voyage of the Mayflower and the first year of The Pilgrims in America.
Dima is very fond of watercolor technique. And he’s amazing with that. Watercolor (as defined by Wikipedia) is a painting method in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-based solution. Watercolor refers to both the medium and the resulting artwork.
