‘Phynta masters the classical craft of painting and has merged it with the contemporary hype of 3D imagery of Hollywood.’

Meet Phynta

Phynta

Phynta is fascinated by the dualistic aspects of life; the fact that much, if not everything in life, is not what is seems. By looking at things from a different perspective one can change the meaning and value not only of what is looked at but also of one’s own identity.

Phynta Self Portrait

Phynta was born in Rotterdam (1979) but is an Amsterdam based artist. Phynta is his artist name, but his real name is Stefan Da Costa Gomez. After studying at the Willem De Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and the School of Visual Arts in New York he started working in advertising as an art-director and visual designer. 

Now years later, while still working as a freelance art-director and illustrator/designer he followed his heart doing what made him want to go to art school in the first place: drawing and painting.
