About Us

iLAdesigns is dedicated to provide designers, architects, collectors, and homeowners with professional resources in applied arts. Along with classic murals and trompe l'oeil, our unique specialty is true (buon fresco) - the oldest and most celebrated painting technique. We provide art direction, management and implementation of architectural and interior décor installation as well as restoration projects. Our expertise in buon fresco, which is the foundation of applied arts, enables our company to deliver natural finishes, plasters, elements of décor without using faux finishing substitutes. We refine classic, centuries-old techniques to seamlessly work with sophisticated contemporary aesthetics reflecting our client’s personal taste, style and appreciation of authentic finishes. Our team of hand-picked artists certified by the Fresco School has successfully completed numerous projects in true buon fresco and décor at many private homes. Our commercial projects include Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, the Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, Governor’s Ball decor at the 73rd and 76th Academy Awards, 50th Emmy Awards. True fresco is 100% green, a purely organic medium with zero VOC where all elements come from earth: plaster is made of marble lime putty and sand. Pigments are prepared from natural minerals and clays. As wet plaster absorbs natural paint and reacts with the air, the pigments get permanently embedded into cured plaster leaving works of art intact for generations and millennia. iLia Anossov (fresco), the Principal, is one of the very few artists in the world who can be considered masters of the art of fresco painting. His knowledge of the techniques of this most difficult art form is sought out by his contemporaries at great art institutes and museums. iLia is the founder of Fresco School which is the only art school in the U.S. offering ongoing fresco curriculum. He is the author of “Buon Fresco Foundations” DVD tutorials from Introduction to True (Buon) Fresco Painting Series. Anatoly Valushkin, the Principal in charge of Business Development, is an entrepreneur and Information Technology professional with diverse experience in Visual Arts Management, Software Product Management, Education, and Entertainment industries. He has worked on multiple public art and private art projects for Fresco School and the renowned muralist Kent Twitchell.
