Costa Magarakis, aka Duck Pirate, is a Tel Aviv-based artist specialized 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.
