Growing up in the Soviet Union, he attended Moscow School of Fine Arts and was then accepted into the prestigious Surikov Academy of Fine Arts, from which he graduated with honors. During the tumultuous period of change that occurred in the 1980s during the Gorbachev era, Eylanbekov decided to start life over in the United States, becoming a U.S. citizen. In the past twenty years, his artwork has garnered praise all over the world.
