Ilia_Mayer – N.T. Color & White – Fousion Gallery

Ilia Mayer

Ilia Mayer is a visual artist and a musician who delves into the pictorial disciplines of watercolor, oil, and muralism, alongside photography and experimental music. Employing an interdisciplinary approach, Mayer seeks to interconnect these forms of expression to construct an artistic body of work reflecting themes such as solitude, the "sense of wonder," and anti-speciesism.

In Mayer's paintings, allegorical beings traverse remote worlds, exploring the connection between individual experience, solitude, and the vastness of their surroundings. Through these symbolic representations, visual narratives are woven, inviting the contemplation of solitude as an integral part of the human experience.

Mayer's music aims to present these same ideas through the abstract experience offered by this artistic medium. Through experimental compositions, the creations become a sonic journey inviting the audience to explore and reflect on these themes in a sensory and non-literal manner.

Internationally exhibited, Mayer's works serve as an exemplification of this creative convergence, offering a reflection on the human condition and the surrounding environment.
