Dmitry Syrov is a well-known modern Russian artist whose works are located in private collections in the US, Russia, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, and Germany, and more. He is a painter who practices artistic freedom, and he is a talented successor of the Southern Russian school of colourist painting. In addition, not only can the influence of French postimpressionism be traced from his original style, but so can the influence of the German school of abstract expressionism. In the words of the artist:
"Painting, like any other form of art, is the language of feelings and emotions, that our soul speaks in. Every person is a complex musical instrument, and art - in this case painting - is the tuning fork that tunes this instrument."
