Dimitri Gagnon Morris is a goldsmith as well as an accomplished artist with over a decade of professional experience in the media arts (traditional animation, motion-graphics, video, design, etc.). Originally from Ottawa/Gatineau, he now lives in Montreal and dedicates most of his time to the creation of both artistic and functional objects, such as jewellery.
A nomad and mystic at heart, Dimitri has traveled the world in pursuit of inspiration. Having been raised in the arts and crafts world he has always felt naturally inclined to working with his hands and learning new skills. He discovered a passion for metal work while taking a silversmithing workshop in Mexico, in 2010, and shortly thereafter, he enrolled in the three-year jewellery-making program at l’École de joaillerie de Montréal.
In the past two years his jewellery work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most notably in 2014 as a finalist for the Niche Awards (student category) and as a finalist for the prestigious Prix François-Houdé in Montreal.
In his unrelenting quest of self discovery as an artist, Dimitri now studies fine arts at Concordia University where he is completing his BFA while pursuing his practice as a jeweller.
