About Facundo Kostelak

Artist and graphic designer

Born in Argentina in 1995. Resident in Spain since 2020

 

"One of the roles that the body has is that of being the fruit of the historical memory that one has, it is the translator of the sensations and emotions that move us. The body is the container of the soul and both are the same substance that make up the to be".

 

Facundo uses the body as a narrative of his ideas, involving himself in his works where he is traversed by detachment and passing to states that converge in a being that wants to deprive itself of itself. On the other hand, in his paintings, the degradation and distortion of objects are gestated, in addition to representing places that the artist once inhabited and where he expresses the passage of time by anchoring himself in the ephemeral gesture.
