Ivan Iliev

Ivan Iliev

Vienna, Austria

"The primary aspects of my artistry are my deep love for nature and a strong connection to the late Renaissance and Baroque styles of painting. I encounter the subjects of my artwork in my everyday surroundings. The plants that have always intrigued me represent more than just their natural forms — they embody the ebb and flow of time, encompassing both growth and decay."

Born in 1951 in Burgas, Bulgaria, Ivan Iliev studied at the Art Academy in Sofia. Following his graduation, he served as an artistic editor-in-chief for several years. Since 1990, he has been living and working as an independent artist in Vienna, Austria, and has been featured in numerous international group and solo exhibitions.

Landscape

Landscape painting doesn't need an explanation.
Everything we see, go through, or dream about is a kind of landscape. One of the main motivations, to take the brush in your hand.

Still life

5 artworks
from € 3,930 to 5,190

The Still life painting is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate, commonplace objects, but very often containing allegorical symbolism relating to the depicted object and the personal philosophy of the artist. So a nice way to tell intriguing stories.

As they say, the artist starts his/her carrier painting a still life composition and ends it the same way: painting still life.
