Meet Featured Artist, Dimitri Gudgenov!
Gudgenov's artwork is on display now until March 5 at our Westlake location, 701 S Capital of Texas Hwy.
Gudgenov was raised in Montreal, Canada by his Brazilian mother and Bulgarian father and is a proud Canadian American. In the 1990s, his family moved to North Carolina. Gudgenov attended architecture school at North Carolina State University. After practicing architecture in North Carolina for a few years he decided to move back to Montreal, where he met his wife, Lisa, who is a native of New Zealand.
In 2014, Gudgenov and his wife spontaneously followed the music to Austin, never having visited and without any job prospects. It didn't take long for Gudgenov to land a job at a local architecture firm and soon after he began getting involved in the city's fine arts scene.
Gudgenov has been creating art for about 10 years using techniques he learned in architecture school, like sculpture and 3D modeling, to create these three-dimensional artworks inspired by organic forms.
