Albuquerque Fresco by Ilia Anossov

Albuquerque Fresco

The Albuquerque Fresco is a paradigm of a brilliant modern fresco. Its technique is on the Grande scale, 23 ft by 19ft. Viewing it is reminiscent of watching a gigantic film, for this fresco incorporates not only cinematic techniques, and reminders of the most brilliant cartoon art, but also resounds of the painting of late modern artists with a flair for whimsy, like Jean Miro, and Paul Klee...

About our instructors


Ilia Anossov


Ian Hardwick


"...Ilia and his highly skilled team demonstrated a high degree of discipline and creativity during the two-month project. He transformed a thirty-foot wall into a living display of beauty that will outlast most of the art and architecture of the Southwest. He is a creative genius and works with a wonderful team..." Amy Bowers, Emmy Award Winning Documentary Producer (Best Public Affears) ABTV


"...Ilias understanding of the components and team effort is true to the past masters of the art. He truly is a visionary. It's been a year since the fresco was completed. It has changed it's outlook every day of the past year. Ilias talent is beyond merely fabulous. The technique in itself is an amazing art form. Ilias interpretation with and in the materials is exquisite. The beauty continues to evolve and intensify, as the fresco becomes its intended self. Seeing past the immediate results and understanding the final outcome is truly the realm of the fresco master..." Steve Upah, Patron


"...Ilia stands amidst the very few talents who are actually breathing life back into the medium - Ben Long and Charles Kapsner among them - in the United States, and who are consistently refining the art of fresco, painting beautiful pictures for generations to enjoy. Ilia goes a step further than his colleagues in one aspect though: he had made generous strides in uniting growing Internet communities interested in fresco. His web site(TrueFresco.com) is nothing short of amazing in its depth and breadth, and it's become a major forum - perhaps THE forum - on the subject..." Mark W. Stone, Emmy Award Winning Producer WVIZ/PBS
