A graduate of the Faculty of History revives the technique of linocut as the most appropriate way join and blend with reality. Absence of classical artistic degree doesn’t disturb to create intuitively and based on personal craftsmanship skills and sense of beauty.
Quickness, surprise, the option of decoration, variability of color and the method of artistic citation - these are the principles and stages of creation of works. Yes, this is "FAST ART", which allows you to respond very quickly to the world’s changes and speak up. It is accessible and modern; inter-disciplinary, combining photo, design and printed graphics.
There is only one exhibition in the list - Y4Y - Young for Young (2015) at Agency. Art Ru; and that - the presented works - hand silk embroidery, to which Ilya devoted 14 years. New time and new direction - linocut graphics. "UNKNOWN BUT TITLED AND SIGNED" is an ironic name for the future exposition, the author says with a smile.
The portfolio of works is a view of the world - inside and outside. Pictures from childhood and vacation photos are mixed with magazine clippings, posts of friends from social networks, phantom images of nightclubs and other moments of memory.
