Serving Toronto's most liveable community with the Annex Gleaner

ON THE COVER: Backyard dreams (Dec. 2021)

December 17th, 2021 · 2 Comments

Artist Brian Killin finds inspiration in everyday Canadian life, both rural and urban. His favorite subjects include; a late-night shinny hockey game, a fresh snowfall in northern Ontario, the hustling urban landscape of downtown Toronto, and the peaceful beaches of Prince Edward Island. The breadth of his subject matter is an exploration of Canadian identity. Brian models his artwork after the great Canadian artists, Cornelius Krieghoff and Ken Danby. He has shown his artwork over the past thirty years throughout Toronto. 

Commissions available upon request.

    Wow! I’ve seen Brian’s work in community groups on Facebook and they are always so impressive. I particularly love his paintings of peoples homes.. I commissioned him to do one for my husband and I before we moved. Now we can enjoy our first house in our new house!

    Such a beautiful CANADIAN painting! Love it. I can hear the skates and pucks. I love your streetcar scenes as well.
