About Me

Konstantin Kiriakov, a multidisciplinary artist, designer, and illustrator
Hello,

I'm Konstantin Kiriakov, a multidisciplinary artist, designer, and illustrator living in Ottawa, Canada. In 2014 I graduated from Concordia University with distinction, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Film Animation and a minor in Film Studies.

 

My work primarily focuses on illustration, and visual-development. In essence, I create fresh and intriguing visual worlds for the entertainment industry. As a freelance artist, I have produced work in Television and Film for clients like Jam Filled, Mercury Filmworks, Netflix, Disney, Mattel and National Geographic.

 

Being classically trained in painting and drawing, I strive to incorporate traditional technique and digital mediums to create unique and captivating works.
