Dmitry Rakov specializes
in the field of IMP ART (IMPossible ART). IMP ART is a form
of OP ART which is a style that is unique in its attempt
to show movement on the surface by using careful arrangement
of geometric shapes in order to produce a variety of optical
Taking an intellectual approach in his
art form, he focuses on the originating idea of his art
and the process by which it is presented, allowing the idea
expressed and its process to share center stage with his
tangible drawing. He interprets his works as a dialectical
and proportionate interaction of order and disorder, of
symmetry and asymmetry, of geometric accuracy and elegant
deviations from it, of reasonable actions and intuition.
While conceptual works are sometimes expressed in language
alone, often existing only as ideas or notes, this artist
chooses to express the ideas of his works in a more traditional
form in which the conditions of his image surfaces are created
and preserved. He strives to integrate feelings with thought,
using more than his mind to rule his creative processes.
Rakov, who holds many distinctions of honor,
