Kito Muñoz and Filip Custic, who operate under the moniker Filip y Kito, are a Spanish-born creative duo who describe themselves as “art directors, photographers, stylists”. The dynamic of the partnership may be unclear, but Filip y Kito’s work speaks for itself with not a mumble but a roar.
Creating images which are joyfully surreal, Filip y Kito bring together influences woven together from the tapestry of the past with the otherworldly uncertainty of the future. Theirs is a world which is highly theatrical and carefully staged but open to new interpretations. Nowhere perhaps is this felt more keenly than in the fragile but defiant telling of masculinity Filip y Kito map onto the bodies of their subjects.
Filip y Kito’s highly traceable output has earned them pages in publications including El Pais, Solar, GQ Style, Fucking Young and a story for Opening Ceremony.
