'The Disappearance' is a short short story by multimedia artist Kostas Gogas narrating a morning of an unnamed protagonist who discovers that the neighbor he aggressively watches everyday is not at home. It's an existential story of boredom in modern times.
The Couch is a short short absurd existential story by artist Kostas Gogas about a Man going blind for no apparent reason.
Following the 'Headache' mindset, this was a music video focused on minimalism, in terms of color, camera placement, acting and editing.
A video work that was never released but was the first time were I really had managed to create something original, combining cubism influences with abstraction to create a minimal video work with the illusion of no cuts in the montage.
Created this series of small abstract shape paintings using acrylics, watercolors, gouache and ink.
Experimenting with abstract expressionism, this series of paintings were produced in my first ever studio, making use of the freedom to spread colors everywhere.
As a heavy pencil-on-paper artist for most of my career, I never spent a thought until now to focus exclusively on producing art on paper that will have value on its own. That's what I did here.
Starting to produce art with one continuous line. A style I came up with on Christmas 2007.
A series of paintings were I created art with the least: only cheap black or white homepaint and painted on found surfaces like cardboards and wooden boards.
Eager to explore painting on a canvas I set out to create one canvas per week for one year.
These drawings were created here and there before I finally turned to more serious work on paper.
In this period I also created some minimal drawings with pen or pencil, eager to depict simple pictures with the least effort, straight to the point, sweet and elegant.
From 2007 I wasn't really working on graffiti anymore but I created some works on walls until 2012. My graffiti starts to resemble painting in this period. I have completely abandoned spraypaint and don't paint ordinary graffiti themes anymore.
Third & Final music album by Ansia. Focused on rhythms, streets and hip-hop. With electro & funk vibes. It was also the first ever underground Hip-Hop double album.
The second album of Ansia was the also the most successful and the most personal. With a variety of rhythmic styles and genres 'Chameleon' tried to reach people outside the hip-hop realm and bring them inside.
The first album officially released by Ansia. It acts as an introduction to our group and establishes the cornerstones of our approach: we will be the first underground hip-hop group to release Music Videos or offer Beatifully Lyric Booklets along with our tracks.
One of my favorite music videos, the first and only for 'Cult-87'. It is black and white, raw, urban, handheld, free and straight to the point. The aesthetics were exactly as they should be. Fan fact: this video was copied by others after we released it.
The second video for 'Chameleon' was for 'Harlequin', an intro song from the album that while we weren't sure about it when we released it, it made quite an impact on our audience and that influenced the decision of making a video for it. I still get praise for this one.
The first music video for 'Chameleon' was an upbeat song & a video full of colors and everyday sets.
Trying to create the first music video for an underground band in Greece, I was determined to make it work.
My first short film was a silent surreal short about two ego maniacs antagonizing each other until one of them kills the other.
Three comic characters for Ansia, one for each member.
Created a 2 page comic for a competition of the Greek Comic Magazine '9'. It wasn't even praised (but I don't really remember if I did submitted it).
Created this funny design for a t-shirt based on a 'name' I used to tag with for a small period.
Playing around with my first computer. Most of these works were based on sketches on paper.
