"Costa has drawn inspiration for his works of art from his broad travels and his abundant life experiences as both a visitor and resident of numerous countries around the world. Born in Russia in 1968, Costa developed his unique brand of art through his extensive schooling at the Art College and the Academy of Arts in Moscow. His passion and talent for art was recognized by Russia's Union of Young Artists when he received the Development of The Year Award in 1997. Through his paintings Costa goes beyond the obvious to uncover the symbolism within the human aspect of daily life. His creativity and style come alive through his works depicting dark and surreal imagery.As a viewer of Costa’s images, one is transported to a world of fictional proportions that exists in the recesses of the artist’s mind. Humans and animal figures though a Methomorphosis shrouded in darkness, suggest the existence of a distorted world-order. These images evoke one to closely examine and question the reality of what one sees.
"After a certain point you have to refresh the exchange. To step back and take a shower so to speak. After a number of years engaged with the figures in captivity, I happened to see the jumping boy." - Costa Dvorezky
