Kosart Effects Studios
Twisted somewhere between the then and now, visions have plagued me. Art is my only antidote. Refining my skills and techniques to anatomically draw the figure, focusing on rendering with intricate detail through many media, the characters and creatures conjured reflect a relationship amongst themselves and also with their environment, often in tales of innocence, dark romance, duality, and fear. With a stroke of my brush, layer upon layer of color saturates the paint surface to illuminate the lights and deepen the shadows, capturing three-dimensional forms in a two-dimensional restraint.
Conversely through painting, I have been drawn to the world of special effects, exploring the boundaries of sculpture by applying my two-dimensional designs to three-dimensional make-up effects and prosthetics. Through this combination of visual and performing art, I can create something more than just a fixed scene or expression on canvas or stone; I create a simulation of life itself.
As the creator, I strive for perfection in realism, to continuously grow as an artist in everything that I do. Looking up to the Renaissance masters Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Caravaggio, and the countless others who held a standard of art that is absent from the world today, I aspire to reach the perfection of that golden age of art. Despite the familiar connotation of the word "effects," the name "KOSART Effects" not only encompasses my alter ego of special effects, but also of all my art and everything that I am. The word "effect" means "end result" and “the extent to which something succeeds." In a way, "KOSART Effects" is more of a promise to myself and to the world, a promise best said in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, "So much has been done. More, far more, will I achieve; treading in the footsteps already marked, I will pioneer a new way, explore unknown powers, and unfold to the world the deepest mysteries of creation."www.kosarteffects.com
