Exhibits soon followed throughout Israel and abroad, as well as shows in the United States. Ilyayevs work is characterized by the elevated texture he creates by applying oil paints with a palette knife. His compositions of light and shadow are affected by the transitions of the seasons.Drawing heavily on autumnal colors and the changing of the leaves, Ilyayev often portrays a theme of rainbow-colored, tree-lined streets, reminiscent of Central Park in November. His foregrounds, especially streams and ponds, frequently mimic the strokes of the leaves below as the spectrum of colors leap off the canvas. Ilyayev was influenced by Post-Impressionist artists, in particular, Vincent van Gogh. Ilyayevs technique is comprised of three main stages: he first creates the composition using a paintbrush. He then applies paint by palette knife creating a layered and heavy texture.
Finally he sketches with a thin brush and carves the raised paint. Due to the thickly layered paint, Ilyayevs artwork requires a long period to dry, which can take upwards of a year.Ilyayev, his wife and their children live in Tel Aviv. In addition to painting, Ilyayev teaches art in academies in Israel, an endeavor which he first began in 1998. His works have been shown in various group and one-man exhibitions throughout Israel, the United States, Europe and the Far East.
