Ilya Yod was born in 1984 in Leningrad, Russia graduating from the French Poitiers Art School in 2010 when he presented his paintings from the Inside Perfect series at the Moscow Center of Modern Art exhibition curated by Vladimir Potapov. Ilya Yod desperately asks himself how painting can remain relevant in a hyper-digital age. 


Working under a pseudonym, the artist does not share his images online and in other media spaces. Ilya Yod currently works both in Russia and France, where he runs his two studios.
