Costa Magarakis is a fine art trained artist who lives and works in Tel Aviv, a city that continues to inspire his dark visions. He uses different kinds of mediums and is specialized in sculptures. His work can be expressed as a gothic wonderland illuminating the grey area between truths and lies. And is often a combination of grotesque imagery that is drawn from modern symbols and icons merged with mythology, religion and science.
Magarakis: ‘I often find archetypes in old children’s books and toys. I am attracted to things that evoke memories from childhood. The grotesque and the unknown are all important themes in the body of my work. I try to express something from my inner mind’.
