Dimitri Gagnon Morris
Originally from Ottawa/Gatineau, Dimitri enjoyed a decade-long career in the media arts (animation/motion graphics) before discovering a passion for metalwork during a silversmithing workshop in Mexico. He moved to Montréal in 2011 and completed the three-year jewellery program at l’École de joaillerie de Montréal in 2014. In parallel to his jewellery practice, Dimitri completed a BFA in studio arts at Concordia University in 2020. Dimitri’s work has been exhibited in venues including the Musée National des beaux arts du Québec, the Musée des métiers d’arts du Québec, the Niche Awards (Philadelphia), and Craft Ontario (Toronto); it has appeared in publications including Narrative Jewelry: Tales from the Toolbox (Mark Fenn, Schiffer: 2017) and Elle Québec. Dimitri’s work straddles craft’s functional aspects with art’s transformative power.
