Art critic's comment

The works of Ilya Khokhrin attract the attention of both connoisseurs of classical painting, thanks to the use of techniques and poetic images of classical painting, as well as lovers of new directions of modern painting filled with philosophical ideas.
The works of I. Khokhrin are distinguished from other artists of similar directions - originality, a storm of nature and human emotions. Two directions of creativity of this young artist can be distinguished: experiments in the framework of hyperrealism and expressive landscape works. The main source of inspiration for the painter is exceptional nature.
Khokhrin is in constant dialogue with the viewer, and his paintings never leave the viewer indifferent. It is worth noting that the artist seeks to work with the concept of new sincerity using traditional material - oil painting. Truly, the ability to constantly amaze the viewer with unique natural, emotional, or artistic images is an inherent rich talent of this talented artist and the enviable quality of his multifaceted creativity.
Subtle and deeply sincere emotions, concisely and clearly captured by the artist on canvas, convey the artist's sensitive feelings, inevitably inspiring and inspiring the viewer. Contemplating canvases, involuntarily there is a desire to reevaluate internal values, setting yourself up for higher aesthetic ideals.
