Intro
A textile and jewelry designer graduated in 1988 at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Has participated in group and individual exhibitions in most of European countries, Argentina, USA, Japan and South Korea. His works are to be found in the Museum of Arts and Design (New York, USA), Costum Museum (Buenos Aires, RA), CODA Museum (Apeldoorn, NL), Centre of Fine Arts (Utrecht, NL), Textilemuseum (Tilburg, NL). Acosta has published several articles among which are those dealing with its own method of textile design in the Dutch magazine Textiel Plus and Spanish Oficio+arte. He was correspondent of the magazine Arte Facto and Tramemos textiles. Makes relief tapestries, three dimensional textile works and spatial works of (handmade) paper and teaches courses on "Design for woven fabrics and jewelry" worlwide.

Statement

As a designer he is particulary interested in forms. Once a form is found, he enlarges or repeats it. Then he concentrates on using the possibilities of that form as a basis to develop a design.
It's important to work with both shapes and colour. The first gives dimension to the design while the second provides warmth. One way of doing this, is to 'play' with a shape and several layers of different coloured handmade paper, which sometimes gives rise to an intriguing hybridization, conjuring up the impression of something plaited.
