Ilya Smirnov came to the workshops of the center in 2015 immediately showing himself as a talented artist. Most often, he depicts plants - trees, flowers - with confident color control. In 2017, his works were exhibited at the Hermitage: for the exhibition "In Paints Alone" Ilya created paintings inspired by the masterpieces of Matisse and Derain from the museum collection. Now Ilya continues to progress as an artist in the bookbinding workshop, experimenting in graphics and printing on fabric.
