Deanovich’s whimsical, one-of-a-kind paintings depict a world abounding with fantastical characters and imaginative places. Each work is painstakingly created using acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil, and charcoal with exquisite detail and a luminescent color palette. The artist, who grew up in St Petersburg, says that his work is influenced by storytelling traditions.

“My work is greatly influenced by early film and the groundbreaking Technicolor process. As a young boy, the colors glowing from the screen filled me with a youthful revelry that has never diminished. My paintings exemplify memories of childhood and the joy I found in the process of discovery. I like to believe that in my art the old stories can be made new again.”
