Shoe Sculpture

Stacks Image 3142

His work can be expressed as a gothic wonderland illuminating the gray area between truths and lies. His work is often a combination of grotesque imagery that is drawn from modern symbols and icons merged with mythology, religion and science. Magarakis, is a Tel Aviv-based artist and also goes by the name “Duck Pirate.”

“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”.
