Art practice for me is a way of self-education.

Since 2005, his works have been showcased at various exhibitions and contemporary art auctions both in Russia and abroad. He has also collaborated with international companies, including Nike, Reebok, Swatch etc. In 2016, the InArt research named Aske the 4th by the sum of the auction sales among the young Russian artists. During the last ten years, Dmitri has been painting murals and making public art sculptures, as well as working in studio creating artworks in his unique technique of multilayer plywood mosaics.
