Dmitri Aske (b. 1985) is a Moscow artist and one of the advocates of the urban contemporary art movement in Russia. He started his career as a graffiti writer in 2000 and later switched to graphic design and illustration. Dmitri worked with prominent brands including Nike, Reebok, and the like, creating art objects and graphics. He was also a cofounder of Code Red, former graffiti magazine and a successful Russian street wear brand, which he left in 2015, dedicating himself full time to art.

In recent years, Aske has created plywood reliefs in his unique technique, made sculptures, as well as painted a number of murals both in Russia and Europe. In 2016, according to the InArt (in-art.ru) research, he was named 4th among the young Russian artists by the sum of their auction sales. Besides art, Dmitri runs an online magazine Vltramarine (vltramarine.ru) and gives lectures on graffiti, street art and urban contemporary art.

Having successfully created his own visual language, Dmitri now tries to find a balance between the visual side of his artworks and the ideas and concepts behind them. Aske says that art is his main motivation for self-education; it helps him to evolve both as an artist and as a person. In his art Dmitri contemplates on the problems connected to the past, present, and future of the humankind through the lens of his personal experience.
