To realize the idea, Dmitry donated his own blood and stored it in the refrigerator. No incisions had to be made.

– I have a doctor I know, he takes blood from a vein from a donor. Everything is sterile and safe. For the first time we took 40 milliliters at random, they were just enough for three jobs. We put it in glasses with a special substance that prevents blood from clotting. I keep it all in the fridge, and when I paint, I pour it into the palette, – the artist reveals his secrets.

As a material for painting, according to Dmitry, blood is no different from watercolor, with which he has long been accustomed to working.
