Claudio Kirac

Claudio Kirac (or CK as he is affectionately known) is a ‘modern day renaissance man’ of sorts. Based on the Gold Coast, his career spans more than 15 years as a professional artist, photographer, designer and consultant, working primarily in the fashion and music industries.

With his head in the clouds and two feet planted firmly on the ground, Claudio is constantly investigating the crossover between art and popular culture while questioning the norm within the commercial field. Claudio has stayed true to his signature style, which has been fostered over the years through countless projects that have constantly transcended the boundaries between analogue and digital design.

Claudio has lectured and presented at design conferences and design institutions, including the Queensland College of Art at Griffith University, Billy Blue College, The DesignWorks College of Design, Queensland Institute of Graphic Art, TAFE Gold Coast and most recently AGDA and Adobe.

Claudio’s art and reviews of his work have been published in magazines such as Black+White, Artillery, Monster Children, Tokion, Stab, Dazed & Confused, YEN, Australian Creative and Movement. He has also self-published two books of artwork and photography: ‘Para el Sexo Dialimento’ with Amber B (2006) and ‘INFINITEYE’ (2008). These have been stocked and exhibited throughout Australia and internationally, including Vienna, Paris, Tokyo and New York.
