Ismaël Costa from France has been honored as the Iconic International Artist and Guest Exhibitor 'AURA 2024'

Retro Kolkata Magazine has proudly announced Ismaël Costa as the Iconic International Artist and Guest Exhibitor for the upcoming 'AURA 2024- International Photography & Art Exhibition'. This prestigious event is scheduled to take place at Nazrul Tirtha, Newtown, Kolkata, from January 13 to January 21, 2024.

Ismaël Costa, a distinguished artist from Barcelona, Spain, now residing in Provence since he was nine, has been recognized for his remarkable contributions to the art world. His artistic journey began in childhood with a passion for drawing, particularly comics, which later evolved into a profound interest in portrait painting during his adolescence.

Costa's professional career started at sixteen, initially working for a publishing house, followed by a stint as an illustrator with a Parisian communications agency. Despite a successful career, the allure of pictorial art called him back to the South of France, where he established his own art company in Monteux, Vaucluse, in 2006. This marked a significant turning point in his life, allowing him to dedicate himself fully to his artistic pursuits.

Over the past two decades, Ismaël Costa has been tirelessly working on his canvases, honing his personal technique, and undertaking various wall decoration projects for both private individuals and companies. His dedication to art extends beyond his own work; he is a vital part of his community's artistic landscape, actively supporting various art forms and events like "La Traversée des Arts," which showcases local artists and craftspeople.

Costa's art, known for its dynamic and contemporary style, is a blend of acrylic and oil paintings. His figurative works, characterized by a free movement approach and a palette of clear, varied tones, have earned him widespread acclaim.

The art exhibition at AURA 2024 will be held from January 13 - January 15, with the photography exhibition following from January 18 - January 20. The event will conclude with a felicitation ceremony on January 21, where Ismaël Costa's unique and influential artistry will be celebrated. This event promises to be a significant cultural highlight in Kolkata's artistic calendar, showcasing the talents of an artist who has passionately dedicated his life to the world of art.
