Hey world changers! I’m so excited to show you how I’ve become successful doing what I love! As a teenager I dove into my passion for art. With discipline and hard work I sold over a million dollars in art sales by the time I was 15. My success is a result of what I learned at the Milan Art Institute and now my paintings are collected by people from all over the world. I am pioneering a new age of artist influencers on social media, spreading beauty across the entire planet. As a mentor and co-owner at Milan Art Institute, I am passionate about equipping artists to change the world with their art.
Dimitra Milan
Hey guys! I am so thrilled to be one of the instructors for the program. As a music producer, painter, videographer, and poet, I envision a world where art is in every home – enriching life and our very existence. I started with little to no painting experience, took an instructional workshop just so I could write copy more effectively, and in just one lesson my understanding and painting skills increased so much! I learned that all it took was practice and good instruction to become a great artist. Now, I’m empowering artists all over the world.
Jake Dunn
Hello all! I’ve been creating art and jewelry since I was 10 years old. By age 15, I completed the Mastery Program. I’ve been painting and selling my work as a professional artist ever since and continue creating jewelry. I find inspiration from the world around me, my travels, and the way that beauty affects the lives we lead.
Constantino Milan
Hi, I’m Dalia! I grew up in a family of artists and have always had art around me and was blessed to have a teaching and understanding of art history. I feel inspired to create an escape and understanding for true bliss and happiness. I try to create that utopia in my art and I hope that when people look at my art they feel transported into that special place for themself.
Dalia Milan
Hi! I grew up in a family of artists and have been fortunate enough to be able to explore my passions for creating since I was little. I am motivated by freedom, individualism, and expressing those needs through art. I aim to achieve balance between freedom and chaos through expressive mark making and abstract techniques.
Dafni Lynde
Hi, DJ Freezy J here! I am so excited to show you guys how to bring anything you dream to life in your artwork. I started painting and drawing on anything I could as a kid: t-shirts, jeans, jackets, motorcycles. Now I’ve been a professional artist for over 20 years! I’m inspired by artists like Jean Basquiat and Andy Warhol. Art, to me, is a way to bring joy to the world and ourselves — to be totally free!
