Artist Izum Ilya Vladimirovich

Country: Russian Federation
City: Moskow

Born in 1986 in Plyos, Ivanovskaya region.
In 2002 entered Ivanovo College named after Malyutin, department of painting from which graduated with honor. My teachers were V. Nuzhdin, A, Fyodorov, A, Yermolayev, V, Gribov.
In 2006 held first personal exhibition at Trubnikov Gallery in the city of Furmanov, Ivanovskaya region.
In 2008 entered Orthodox Humanitarian Saint-Tikhon University, department of church art, restoration of tempera and oil painting in Moscow. I lived in the space of workshops together with such Masters as A. Lazykin. S, Grinyov and V. Inchin. Studied there for 3 years then quit and returned to studying oil painting via plein airs, books, cooperation and experience exchange with artists although never left restoration of icon and paintings.
In 2012 took classes in calligraphy from a Japanese master and started self-studying of Japanese flute, mosaics and plaster bar relief at the workshop of Egorov, participated in decoration of children’s playgrounds and garden sculpture.
Since 2013 has been giving lessons of painting and drawing. Took part in decoration of an orthodox temple with mosaics.
Since 2014 has been trying the art of video operator, video editor and in media art. Took part in multimedia project “Place of presence” dedicated to A. Krasulin as a video editor. Curator of the exhibition was N. Nasedkin.
My main devotion is plain air. It is a non-stop process in my life. Each year I participate in exhibitions at Central Artist’s Home in Moscow.
Since 2002 I have been painting from nature and consider this my main goal as nature has always inspired and enriched spiritually and intellectually great masters of the past and keeps doing this now.
For me, as for a person with a camera, it is more interesting to show the texture of the object, which characterizes the atmosphere in which this object is situated and interacts with nature and human; although, I can easily substitute its contexts. Of course, the details surrounding me and among which I grew are primary. I am attracted to that area of the art which is on the border of two realities – the virtual and the real one. This area has many questions. I view it as this – now the object returns to the sphere of attention of contemporary artists, it gives me hope as I am based on the traditional classic foundation and I am convinced that the art is objective and cannot live and develop without the artistic ideals of the antiquity.
In conclusion, I would like to quote the great master of the Renaissance Leonardo da Vinci, “Take nature as a teacher, intelligence as a mentor, wisest experienced people as advisors.” In my art I tend to follow this rule.
