The Canada Council for the Arts commissioned world-renowned illustrator Raymond Biesinger to create original posters that capture the spirit of creativity, discovery and innovation recognized by the Killam Program. He responded with beautiful, full-colour illustrations inspired by the fields of study – we hope, in turn, that you’ll be inspired by these posters.

We encourage you to download the versions below (free of charge) and share them widely.
High quality silkscreened or printed versions are available for purchase from the artist.

About illustrator Raymond Biesinger

Raymond Biesinger

Raymond Biesinger is an illustrator and artist based in Montréal, who has also spent a long time in Western Canada. He likes concepts, making music, politics, and a mix of minimalism and maximalism. He deploys physical things, electronic means, complex geometry and a BA in European and North American political history to make his images, and has been lucky to do so since the year 2000 in over 1000 projects on five continents.
