Dima Gorban was born in Russia in 1961, and moved to Kishinev in Moldavia when he was three. His deep affinity for wine began with his grandfather who grew grapes in the spacious family yard and made wine for home use. A culture of wine was instilled in the entire family, and Dima loved helping his grandfather in all the tasks involved.
Dima started art studies at age ten, winning awards and recognition from early on, following in the footsteps of his elder brother, Michael. In 1990 the family emigrated to Israel where Dima achieved acclaim as a talented graphic designer for a Russian winery and a textile manufacturer.
In recent years Dima has been a full-time artist. His unique, precise style, interior paintings, and especially his wine paintings with their characteristic bold colors have captivated art lovers the world over.
