Dimitri Yin 

b. 1974 in Concord, California and currently based in Athens, Greece


Dimitri Yin is a French/American artist of Chinese and Greek ethnicity based in Athens, Greece.

He has exhibited in The US, Cyprus, France and the UK. He holds a BA in Studio Art from San Diego State University (2001) and an MFA from The Wimbledon College of Art (2017). 


With a background in scenography, carpentry and landscape design, Yin’s sculpture practice “frames” the strengths and vulnerabilities of the traveller in exodus. Through the use of diverse materials such as wood, metal, Dimitri suggests realities that are embedded in material. Two other mediums allow him to explore the fourth dimension of time and these are video and living plant material.

In 2018, Dimitri created Phoenix Athens Gallery and Residency in Athens, Greece in order to provide fellow creatives with the space and facilities, to develop their practice. Yin's time is shared between his own practice and documenting and curating exhibitions for both local and international artists.
