Geometry, balance and a focus on material exploration play a role in Fosteris’ work to this day.
Kostas Fosteris (1953-) was born in Athens; in 1971, he relocated to Florence, Italy to enrol in architecture studies with important Italian architect Adolfo Natalini, whose creations include the double-spired Torre Natalini. Geometry, balance and a focus on material exploration play a role in Fosteris’ work to this day.
After his Italian sojourn, Fosteris returned to Athens, where he today lives and works. The Greek artist’s family had been working with wrought iron for three generations; bent, curlicue and intricately shaped metal has also become a signature for Fosteris. Presented in solo and group exhibitions – installed at galleries including Poppi K Gallery (Athens), Galerie BJF carrè rive gauche (Paris) and at the Italian Cultural Institute in London – Fosteris’ works are of poetic beauty, rendering a heavy material into dynamic, contemporary designs.
