Dimitri Kaliviotis was born in Montreal in 1978 and was mostly raised in Athens Greece. At the age of seventeen he returned to Montreal, where he studied Design Art and focused his efforts on creating functional artworks. After his studies he worked for ten years making physical models for American cinema productions.
It is these very years that give him the chance to explore human relations, but also to cultivate and grow his means of expression. Upon closing his circle of endeavors with the cinema industry -determined to channel his creativity exclusively to visual art forms-, he returns to Athens Greece and opens an art studio, applying his knowledge and skills in the field of fine arts.
In 2010 he starts teaching and is currently a head lecturer in two local institutions. Today, Dimitri Kaliviotis mainly produces works of fine art and takes part in exhibitions and contests. In 2016, “The Feeling of Τhought ” on the island of Lefkas from where he descends, was his first solo exhibition and was deemed a critical success.
