Kosta Kulundzic (born 1972) is a Franco-American artist of Serbian descent.

Biography[edit]

Kulundzic was originally trained as an architect and graduated from the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris (Paris National Fine Arts School) in 1998.[1] In 2012, he was awarded the Claude Berthault prize.[2]

He has taught at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture of Paris Val-de-Seine, at Paris-Sud University, at Honolulu Museum of Art School and he now teaches classical drawing at Hawaii University.[3]

Work[edit]

In 2012, Kosta Kulundzic founded the Under Realist movement with Serbian artist Vuk Vidor and French artist Stephan Pencréac’h. The movement was created as a reaction against the over-conceptualisation of contemporary painting : for them, the image is more important than the idea.[4] The Under Realism is a grouping of artists who share the same vision of the artist's condition and are trying to free themselves from the diktats of markets and trends.

Kosta Kulundzic is the grandson of an orthodox pope,[5] and in his work he builds parallels between religious texts and the violence of contemporary society.[3] He stages a carnivalesque reversal of values, an depicts a world in which women took power over men and perform the most ghastly of crimes in a playful atmosphere.[6]

Kosta Kulundzic has shown that he was a committed artist on several occasions. For instance he sketched the hearings of the trial between Trump and the State of Hawaii in 2017.[7] He has shown his work in (Germany), Belgium, Bosnia, China; Croatia, United-States, Italy, Morocco, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia, Switzerland or Turkey.[8]

In 2018, Kosta Kulundizc was selected for an artistic project and asked to paint two in situ frescoes in the car park of the Royal Hamilius, in Luxembourg, a building designed by the architect Sir Norman Foster.[9] Artists Dorothée Louise Recker, Lise Stoufflet, Gaëtan Henrioux, Axel Sanson and Valentina Canseco also participated in the project.
