Ilia Petrovic was born in Newcastle in 1962 of Serbian/Italian descent then raised in Suffolk.
After leaving Chelsea School of Art in 1995, Petrovic developed a fascination for colours and textures inspired by cosmology and the microcosm, nature, cinematic special effects but mostly inspired by music and lyrics.
Petrovic's work is created on large canvasses, diptychs and triptychs using acrylic and oils with varnishes and resins to create glossy multi layered flowing images on a matt background. The final effect is a volcanic three dimensional blown glass feel in two dimensions.
The intricate images formed can be interpreted in many personal and subjective ways. Whether vibrant or subtle Petrovic enjoys experimenting with colours and the way they combine.
