ANTONIO E COSTA: BEYOND BOUNDARIES – MUNDO GOA

Special Project Curator: Vivek Menezes

Antonio E Costa was born in Malawi, raised in Kenya, and has spent most of the following decades living and practicing both art and architecture in an astonishing array of countries on five continents. He speaks many languages, which aid his shaman-like movements through varying international landscapes, rapidly absorbing ideas, angles, light, colour and shadow which all make their way onto his uncanny, extraordinary abstract paintings. His mastery is one of the worst-kept secrets of the art world, and this very first large-scale retrospective exhibition of his career bares the incontrovertible evidence to the world. This is the best painter you have never heard of.
