My name is Dmitry Ligay. I’m an artist and illustrator from Tashkent, Uzbekistan. In 2007 I graduated from Tashkent State Institute of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Department of Design and since then I started to work with illustrations. I follow the traditional manner of drawing and graphics combining it with editing in Photoshop, and this allows to see the traditional style in a modern context. In my work I use pencil, watercolor, acrylic and other materials. I like the collage technique and working with textures. To date, I’ve been working with several foreign magazines and agencies.
