“When I met Dionisis Kostakis on my second day in Rio de Janeiro last year, there was little about him, if nothing at all, that indicated his unusual hobby…” I wrote in the blog post From Candomblé to Voudun… Eshu to Shango… These are a few of his favourite things.
Two years later, his “unusual hobby” has paid off to become a visual piece of work “O PRIMEIRO” – The First.
“O Primeiro is an attempt to show how the Yoruba Deity Eshu (Exu in Brazil) is worshipped in Candomble and Umbanda” – Dionisis Kostakis.
