filip custic (Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain 1993) works across photography, performance, sculpture and video to address themes around identity, body and our relationship with technology. Mirrors and screens are recurring features, a reference to our age of image-obsession and selfies, and custic also uses symbols, references to science, and art-historical borrowings in his art. The artist focuses his work on the crossover between technology and the body, talking about identity and how technological objects can help us celebrate the diversity of identities of human beings.

custic is the artist behind the album visuals for Rosalía’s El Mal Querer and Lil Nas’s US No. 1 hit, MONTERO (Call me by your name). He also has worked for Spanish fashion designer, Palomo Spain.

His artwork has been exhibited nationally at Caixaforum (Barcelona, Spain), La Térmica (Málaga, Spain), Matadero Madrid (Madrid, Spain), Sala Amós Salvador (Logroño, Spain), Casa de México (Madrid, Spain) and in Colección SOLO (Madrid, Spain).

Internationally his work has been shown at MdbK Leipzig (Germany), the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb (Croatia), or Palazzo Giustinian Lolin in Venezia (Italy), Art Basel Miami (United States) and Odunpazari Modern Museum (OMM) (Turkey). In Spring 2023, filip debuted his first solo show in Japan at Parco Museum Tokyo, human product.

In collaboration with PhotoESPAÑA 24, Museo Cerralbo and Colección SOLO, filip presents his first solo show in Madrid, ‘pq hacemos lo q hacemos?’, creating an intriguing dialogue between the artist’s practice and the Museo Cerralbo, a true representative of 19th century aesthetics. The exhibition, which includes a wide range of media, presents a retrospective of the artist’s most recent years and will be on show until September 2024.
