Biography   Kosta Alex


Kosta Alex established an international reputation during the post-war years through his conviction to his extraordinary idiosyncratic vision, obsessively constructing these over life-size heads from found materials in an absurdist style comparable to the bizarre ironic and satirical collages of the Italian Enrico Baj.

His work, Dieu Soleil  (Sun God) is a wonderful example, which Alex regarded as a “cherished, vital benchmark” in his oeuvre.?

Born in America, Kosta has pursued creative endeavors that gained him an invitation to exhibit at the Whitney Museum in 1941. During the war he enlisted and spent time in Japan, after which he enrolled in the National Sculpture Service in New York.
