Artist Oleg Ilyin was born in 1981 in Sochi, Russia. Since 2005 he lives in Moscow. Painting fascinated Oleg since his early childhood. However, it was a course in abstract painting he took in 2010 in Los Angeles that proved a turning point in his chosen form. At the time he realised this, his obvious attraction to the use of colour, form/texture combinations and the freedom of the shape that abstracts offered him gave way to a healthy series of works. I came across Oleg’s work whilst walking around east-London a little over a year ago, it stopped me in my tracks and I’ve been keep watch on his work ever since.
