Last touch

70 x 50 cm|Limited edition 30 pcs.

I think the most accurate way to describe my style would be figurative abstract expressionism, but I'm not set on anything. I think words are helpful for a viewer to organize such chaotic world, that is art world, but for artists they can be limiting. I tend to like to distort my figures, stretch their anatomy and obscure their faces. Most of my art is focused on figures dissolving in their background, absorbed by it, which reflects an emotion they are experiencing. My figures are slaves of their emotions, they are trying to escape it, but feel trapped by it. - Ilya Shkipin

Ilya Shkipin

Ilya Shkipin (b. 1989) holds a BFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art in San-Francisco and currently lives and works in Hayward, California. After graduating high-school his interest in sci-fi and fantasy illustration quickly faded and was completely replaced with a fascination by a contemporary art.
Learning first to paint digitally he simulated oil painting techniques (most notably in Dogs) which then he transferred into traditional oil/acrylic techniques. In his current work Shkipin employs mixed-media impasto technique to interpret the spectrum of emotional response through amorphous imagery. He explores spaces and relationships of living figures in them.
Shkipin depicts intense emotion from a journalistic perspective, capturing his anguished figures in moments frozen in time: their faces often are lost and distorted, losing their identity, but filled with a trembling anxiety.
