Kirollos Kilada is an artist based in Mississauga, ON, Canada. He holds a Bachelor of Design (BDes) from OCAD University and is currently pursuing a Master of Theological Studies (MTS) in Orthodox Christian Studies at Trinity College at the University of Toronto. His research focuses on Iconography, Sacred Space and Beauty within Coptic Orthodox Tradition.
Kirollos has been commissioned to paint Coptic icons for churches and homes in Canada, The United States, Australia and Europe for both Copts and other Christians. As an iconographer, he endeavors to produce icons which are in symphony with centuries of Coptic tradition, firmly rooted in Art History and Orthodox Theology, through an approach that is dynamic and contemporary.
As an illustrator, he works in a variety of techniques to create images which find meaning in chaos and contradictions, by bending the limits of visual metaphor and symbolic language.
