Slava Ilyayev - Azerbaijan
Art Brokerage: Slava Ilyayev Azerbaijan Artist: b. 1970. Slava Ilyayev was born on May 11, 1970 in Baku, Azerbaijan (formerly part of the U.S.S.R.). He began studying art in his hometown in 1991, attending the Baku College of Arts. After immigrating to Israel in 1995, he continued his studies at the renowned Avni Institute of Art and Design, an art school located in Tel Aviv. Slava Ilyayev is a master of the palette knife. Ilyayev creates colorful and vivid works that carry on the traditions of Post-Impressionists like Vincent van Gogh into contemporary times. The art of Ilyayev immerses viewers in a pleasant world of warmth, energy, and light. His art is exemplified by swathes of color raised above the canvas, resulting in textured compositions that transform nature into an exciting, joyful, and vibrant force. Drawing heavily on autumnal colors and changing leaves, Ilyayev often depicts rainbow-colored, tree-lined streets and paths through parks. His foregrounds, especially streams and ponds, frequently mimic the strokes of the leaves below as the spectrum of colors leap off the canvas. Listings wanted.
