About Costa

Costa Magarakis is a fine artist working with different kinds of mediums and specializing in sculptures. His work can be expressed as a gothic wonderland illuminating the gray area between truths and lies.

His work is often a combination of grotesque imagery that is drawn from modern symbols and icons merged with mythology, religion and science. Lives and works In Tel-Aviv, a city that continues to inspire his dark visions.

Costa explains his work by saying, “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”.
