Originally from Odessa, Ukraine, Iliya Mirochnik immigrated to the United States in the early 1990s with his family. From a young age, Iliya pursued training in the arts. In 2013, he completed his studies in St. Petersburg, Russia in the prestigious I.E. Repin State Institute of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture with a Masters of Fine Arts degree in painting. In his paintings he aims to connect the Russian aesthetic with American sensibilities, creating images that go beyond their origins. He has been the recipient of several prestigious scholarships and awards both in the United States and in Russia, winning the “First Place” award in the American Portrait Society’s International Portrait Competition. Iliya has exhibited within the United States and abroad, including two solo exhibitions, in New York City and Salzburg, Austria. In 2015 Iliya was selected to develop his design for a public monument for Iconbay Residences in Miami, Florida in collaboration with The Related Group architecture firm. Iliya Mirochnik is a regular contributor for New Masters Academy and has recorded the comprehensive Russian Academic Drawing Program for them in 2018. Iliya Mirochnik is currently a Visiting Full-Time Professor at Ringling College of Art and Design where he teaches painting and drawing within the Illustration Department.
