Ilia Levi is an artist from St. Petersburg whose creative interests cover plenty of fields. As an architect, he had taken part in the reconstruction of a number of St. Petersburg’s architectural monuments such as the buildings of the State Chapel and the former Emperor’s Orphans’ Home, and designed a range of cultural institutions like concert hall and art galleries. As a monumental artist he created murals, plafonds, and bas-reliefs for many public and private interiors. In addition to applied works, Ilia implemented his spatial resolutions as pure artworks. This area of his work is versatile as well: from the very corporeal installations in early 2000s till the light projections on Messiaen’s series of organ pieces “Glorified Bodies” which were created for the Mariinsky Theatre in 2014. But his special affection lies in the field of print graphics. Ilia is the author of different new technics and methods, from the very material, like the motopriography – woodcutting with a chainsaw, to intellectual games with random images, hybridizing Dada and New Narrativism traditions. After his last project in Russia, which was focused on creative exploration of Northern Russian church sculpture and scriptural folklore, he had been subjected to political and religious persecution. Due to that he escaped Russia, and transferred his art activities to USA. Works of Ilia Levi are displayed in a range of art museums and national libraries’ print art collections in Russia, Europe and USA.
