French-born Kirili's work has been influenced by, and found inspiration in a wide range of sources including art and artifacts from Africa, India, Nepal, and the Americas, and from ancient art to the sculpture of David Smith. His sculptures from the late seventies up to today portray his interest in masculine and feminine forces, especially the oldest form of this representation, the Hindu yoni and lingum.
