In 1840 Ikonnikov graduated from the Peterburg Institute of Civil Engineers. He then worked in Kiev in the Governorate Construction Commission as a senior engineer, later as an architect. From 1854 to 1895, Ikonnikov was the Architect of Guberniya. In 1854-57 together with academician Ivan Shtrom and architect K.Skarzhynsky, he built the government building on Sofia Square in Kiev.

In architecture he preferred forms of Neo-Renaissance, Neo-Gothic and Neo-Russian styles. Ikonnikov used the Eclectic style for the chapel (1869) and tombstone of Aleksandr Bezak and his wife located in the Kiev Caves Monastery.
