Denis Forkas Kostromitin (1977, Russia) explores mythology and religious symbolism through the ancient Mediterranean tradition of conveying images. Denis’s work is firmly rooted in the aesthetics of antiquity and he seeks to restore the interrupted artistic legacy of nameless masters by introducing contemporary techniques – notably acrylics, – in his process. The synthesis of tradition and innovation forms a framework for the artist’s studies of dreams and philosophy. Forkas’s works have been exhibited around the globe and featured in numerous international music releases as album covers. The artist currently resides in Moscow.
