Ilya Avakov, a talented artist holding a degree in Industrial Design from the Art Academy in St. Petersburg, initially embarked on a career in industrial design. However, his passion for drawing and illustrations soon led him to create digital artwork. Transitioning from the computer, he delved into genuine painting with acrylic, and currently, he primarily works with oil.
Inspiration for Avakov stems from both cars and the works of fellow artists. His creations have been featured in numerous print media, including magazines and books.
