Costa Magarakis, aka Duck Pirate, is a Tel Aviv-based artist specializing in fine art sculptures, mainly with shadowy themes. Among his creations, the series of exotic and bizarre shoe sculptures is one of those that mostly draws attention.
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.Costa Magarakis
