Meet the Artist

 Iliad Terra


A visionary artist using line and color to capture the hidden portrait…


Iliad is a design thinker, an architect, and an artist, 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 an infinite world.  He uses line and color as elements of a language based on the structure of 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 work, creating ambient spaces with structure and forms as poetic expressions.  

He is currently the Director of Interiors of SK+I Architecture, and maintains his studio in Potomac, Maryland.  Iliad designs spaces that are immersive environments as works of art shaped with light, color and texture.     

Prior to joining SK+I, Iliad worked as a fashion photographer while developing concepts for his Qu series.  He has sold primarily to private collectors worldwide, but is increasingly being sought for corporate and commercial collectors. 


Iliad is a storyteller in pursuit of hidden meaning found in our everyday lives.

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