Born: 1970, Baku, Azerbaijan
Ilyayev studied art in Azerbaijan. In 1995, he immigrated to Israel and studied at the Avni Insitute for Art in Tel Aviv. He teaches art in Israel and creates his own versions of post-impressionist works. A master of palette knife technique, Ilyayev creates textured canvases whose light and shadow follow the seasons. An admirer of Van Gogh, his works have their own shimmering play of light and color.
