Iliad Terra

Line and color to illuminate the hidden…


Iliad is an artist and an architect, but most of all, he’s a storyteller. Over the years he has traveled the world in search of hidden patterns and meaning.  His paintings and writings spiral ever deeper into the core of what defines us in our infinite world.  He uses line and color as elements of a larger language rooted in emotion and intuition.





Iliad earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Maryland, and then returned back to UMCP to get his Master in Architecture. As an architect and designer, he brings a blend of art and architecture into his paintings, creating ambient spaces as poetic expressions.

He creates his art in his private painting studio in Potomac, Maryland.  Iliad designs spaces that are immersive environments and works of art shaped with light, color, and texture.

Iliad has worked as a fashion photographer while developing concepts for his Qu series.  He has sold primarily to private collectors worldwide and is increasingly being sought by corporate and commercial clients.





Iliad is a storyteller in pursuit of hidden meaning found in our everyday lives.  Each life’s story is an epic journey through multiple dimensions of being, at once both mundane and sacred, ordinary and extraordinary.  It is the intersection of these stories that are riveting to Iliad and he expresses them through a mixed media of languages. 

His latest work, which will be debuted this upcoming Summer of 2019, dives ever deeper into fractal spirals of consciousness pursuing fluid forms and geometric patterns interwoven in every fiber of our world.
