Christian Cotroneo has written a report in the Toronto Star, about Georgi Danevski’s work on the St. Dimitrija Solunski Orthodox Church in Markham, Ontario:
Every day, Georgi Danevski adds an angel to the architecture.
And by the time Danevski’s mural is done, at 600 square metres, it could be the largest of its kind in North America.
“I make it with love for God, with love for my people and with love for every human,” he says, his thick accent betraying Macedonian roots.
So far, it has taken the artist two years to deck these walls and ceilings with some 500 icons of Christian history. There’s John the Baptist, Mother Mary and Jesus among scores of saints from the Orthodox tradition – all surrounded in gleaming 24-carat gold leaf.
