About the artist Illya Albigo
The main source of inspiration is the world around us and the author’s personal reaction to what is happening in it. People, architecture, natural phenomena - all, evoking certain emotions, are transformed on canvas into their visual reflection, complemented by the technique of work. “I’m not interested in realism as the style of narration. It’s like trying to rewrite already published books word for word. Of course, I admire the work of great classical artists. But, in the digital age, their uncompromised genius was replaced by indispensable cameras, which are creating portraits, still lifes and landscapes just in one click. I believe that life gives us so unique moments, impressions and memories, that you need to talk about them in your own way, without trying to compete with technical progress."
