DimitriD’ippolito (1993) is an Italian/American photographer and a craftsman born in Florence(IT). He studied photography at the Studio Art Centers International Florence (SACI). He had recently graduated from BA Hons -Fine Arts Photography at the University of Brighton with a First Class Honours. Dimitri is currently working for MarkPower as a studio assistant.
Dimitri's art concerns social issues in contemporary society and of past happenings that have an influence on our present. His bodies of work are often politically and satirically charged, as he works following the lines of socially responsible art. His artistic practice is expressed through the use of visual elements(produced by many different mediums and different processes of image creation) and the construction of installations and sculptural pieces. He narrates stories, facts and realities of our lives and surroundings: in order to do so, he investigates and digs into the heart of situations to find the elements that will enable him to guide the narrations. The aim of his practice is to be both critical and analytical whilst, most importantly,creating awareness in the public about issues that he considers important and deserving to be shed light upon. Art has the power of fascinating people and capturing their attention. Dimitri’s bodies of work are in fact generally characterised by the physical involvement of the viewer with the work.
