Experience Fall With the Art of Slava Ilyayev

Fewer artists are able to capture the changing leaves, the crisp air, and romance of fall better than Slava Ilyayev.

Park West Gallery is celebrating the turn of the season with 13 works by Ilyayev that are bound to brighten any home no matter the season or occasion.

There is an Ilyayev artwork suitable for any level of collecting in the Fall Sale. Of the 10 serigraphs available, three editions are on paper and the remaining seven are on boards, which add a new dimension to his colorful works.

Hand-embellished serigraphs on wood board emphasize the signature heavy impasto technique Ilyayev uses to add depth and texture, while serigraphs on paper emphasize Ilyayev’s dynamic color profiles. One image in particular, “A Little Stroll,” is available on both paper and board.

Painting on wood panels was the common practice until canvas became popular in the 16th century. By choosing wooden boards for his hand-painted embellishment works, Ilyayev uses the same medium once used by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Albrecht Dürer.

Those looking to enhance their collection with a unique painting by Ilyayev can select from three captivating works. These works are fine examples of Ilyayev’s elevated oils, command of perspective, and his themes of love and optimism. Due to Ilyayev’s technique, works like these can take up to a year to fully dry before they are made available.

Ilyayev creates his striking artwork in three stages. He begins a work of art with a flat image using base colors. From there Ilyayev adds more paint with a palette knife to build the composition. Even the finest of details are the result of his palette knife mastery. Finally, the artist finishes by layering thick swathes of color with massive and bright strokes. The end results are expressive scenes full of rich, vivid colors and texture.

Born in 1970 in Baku, Azerbaijan, Ilyayev follows in the tradition of the Azerbaijani artists through his extensive use of color. After immigrating to Israel in 1995, he studied at Avni Institute of Art and Design in Tel Aviv. He has been featured in group and one-man exhibitions around the world, including Artexpo New York 2011.

“I’m delighted that you enjoy my art,” Ilyayev says. “Hopefully, I will continue making you happy through my art, creating new images.”
