Acosta’s painting is expressive, visceral, and with solid impastos. It focus on the contemporary world and society combined with the classical statements of art history. What is more, he likes to combine mixed media in a same painting such as: spray, oil, acrylic, collage, and latex with pigment.
His works talk about our relationship with technology and the borders between virtual and real. Also they remember us that, although we can reach a global knowledge, our limitations prevent us to understand the speed of the contemporary world. This concept is an important statement on the Acosta’s paintings, as he emulates the diverse and dynamic method of surf and diving on internet. This results in his approaching to different painting styles without loose his personal identity or motifs. Moreover in his paintings we can find a lot of history books and literature references, like characters, words, illustrations, draws and poems that represent the soul of each book. In those kind of pieces the painting ends erasing all of the references to shows us one final image.
