 Ellada Amvrosiadou 

           

Ellada Amvrosiadou lives in Paphos and has finished Fashion Design Institute in Greece . For some time she worked in the fashion industry yet her love for art took over and the last years she completely focused on it .

Ellada's art is difficult to put between certain frames of a genre , she likes to invent new ,to synthesize and mix different styles but very carefully, invisibly removing the borders .We can definitely say that the analytical state of mind in her paintings is as present as romanticism . In her work minimalism is where the absence of many details is compensated by a distinct center and emotionally bright choice of colours. The scenarios of the pieces do not belong to any type of subjectivism ,as they are filled with metaphors ,associations and symbolism.

When you look at Ellada's paintings you get the unexpected feeling of some fantastic space , afar away mysterious world as if '' through the looking glass''.

Svetlana  De Smet 

          

Svetlana De Smet is a Russian artist who graduated as a teacher from Volgograd University. In 2010, in Luxembourg, at a private art school, she discovered various painting techniques.

"My work in art is an exploration of the depth of feelings and emotions through textural elements and forms. In my works, I use various materials such as texture paste, primer, acrylic, sand and fabric, where texture becomes a language through which I express the entire spectrum of emotion and invite the viewer to feel the richness and variety of surfaces."
Each painting is not only a visual admiration, but also an inner contemplation. They also become the perfect addition to any interior, giving a special charm and individuality to the space.

 

"Iberia" 

   

Artist Name: Svetlana De Smet

Medium: Mixed Media on Canvas

Size:  50x70 cm 

Year Created: 2023

 

 Description: The painting "Iberia" effectively captures the essence of antiquity, as each textured surface intertwines with the cultural foundations of Georgian history. The olive and umber shades imbue it with a profound sense of time, while every brushstroke appears to carry the weight of centuries-old history, transporting the viewer to the expansive realm of the ancient Iberian kingdom.

 

 

"The Silence of Pandora"

Artist Name: Svetlana De Smet

Medium: Mixed Media on Canvas

Size:  40x60 cm (each) 

Year Created: 2024

 

The Silence of Pandora" is not just the absence of sounds but a profound tranquility that envelops this mystical world. In this silence, one can feel a connection with nature, where the whisper of the wind and barely audible sounds of the environment create a unique symphony of peace. Calm shades establish an atmosphere of serenity, while lines softly flowing across the canvas reflect invisible waves of silence. And the mist, like a veil, invites the viewer into a meditative immersion in the soundless harmony of Pandora.

Charalambos Epaminonda

               

Σπουδάζω την τέχνη πρώτα στην ποίηση, στη λογοτεχνία και μετά στη ζωγραφική. Διαβάζω, γράφω και μετά ζωγραφίζω. Πρώτα είμαι λογοτέχνης και μετά ζωγράφος. Πρώτα ο λόγος και μετά η εικόνα. Έτσι, η ζωγραφική μου γεννιέται μέσα από ένα ποίημα. Συνήθως διαβάζω ποίηση και παραμύθια. Από εκεί αντλώ τα θέματά μου.

Όταν έλθουν όλα μαζί να τους τις φορέσει και θα λυθούν τα μαγιά. Η δύσκολη αυτή εργασία είναι η δημιουργία του ποιητή. Από το βαρύ στο ανάλαφρο. Από το σκοτάδι στο φως. Η γυναίκα είναι πρωτεργάτης της ελευθερίας.

George Kotsonis

       

 

George Kotsonis, born on March 14, 1940, in Paleochori, Cyprus, grew up in a large family amidst poverty, with his father working in the Amiantos mines. Despite his parents' aspirations for his education in the city, George's passion for drawing blossomed when he received colored pencils as a gift. His innate talent for capturing his surroundings on paper garnered both admiration and envy from those around him, including his teachers. His love for the Cypriot landscape and its churches deeply influenced his artwork.

Facing financial struggles, George attended the Commercial Academy in Limassol, staying with relatives who owned a bakery. While studying, he continued to paint and worked delivering bread, gaining free entry to the local cinema where he learned about projectors. This exposure to film sparked his fascination with the moving image, shaping his artistic composition.

George's art reflects his cinematic approach, evident in works like the monumental mosaic featuring the Apostle Paul. This masterpiece showcases his skill in composition, emotional expression, and technique. Throughout his life, George remained connected to his roots, drawing inspiration from his childhood landscape and experiences.

Despite his humble beginnings, George Kotsonis's passion for art and his ability to translate his surroundings onto canvas or mosaic established him as a renowned artist. His journey from a poor Cypriot village to artistic acclaim exemplifies the transformative power of passion and talent.

George Mavros    

        

George Mavros was born in 1955 in Paphos.  His father was Kostas Mavros a well known knife maker based in Imbrahim Khan, and his mother was Grigoria Charalambous, of the Kanaris family.  He graduated from the Paphos Technical School and enlisted in the National Guard.  Finishing his term, he traveled as a sailor on ships. He knew many foreign places, other cultures and different people.  But the memories of his home brought him back soon.  He married Maria Michael and they had 3 children and 5 grandchildren. 
He was always in touch with painting and the arts in general, using various materials such as cooper, clay, marble, wood, and oil paints.  He chose painting as an art form motivated by the colors and scenes from the Cypriot tradition.
He is inspired by the manners and custom of the last century, by the great holidays such as Easter “Lambri”, Christmas, summer, harvest, weddings and others.  Also, from the mountains and the stables of the village, from songs, proverbs, and sayings.
George’s painting is experiential and at the same time very narrative.  The artist approaches tradition with respect and love.  These feelings are reflected in his work. His painting has quite a lot of naïve elements with a tendency to render the volume and generally the third dimension.
An element he often projects in the scenes he paints is humor.  A sarcastic humor, since it springs from the sufferings of the common man, but also a peculiar, bitter humor that characterizes George himself.  A joy that gives his work sincerity and humanity.

In this piece you can see a harvest scene on the large field of the Mesaoria near the Pentadaktilo.(Kyrenia Mountains).

Dimitris Meletis

       

 

Highlighting the detail that makes the difference while not forgetting to see the big picture" has always been the main principle of my work as a photographer, since my first clicks about 20 years ago.

A great example is this click that i would like to share with you, the perfect balance of these birds flying 'Under the Same Sun' in a harmonious formation, while we can observe that each one of them has the exact same distance from the sun.

Edo

   

Edo is an up and coming artist in the Art  World. He is focused on creating  contemporary art pieces in multiple colours to enrich one's life.  Past , Present and Future play an important part in his creations as he plays homage to the Old Masters. He tries to envisage and feel the future with great optimism . Hailing from the school of Vokaism, Edo has so far purposely only produced a very limited number of Art creations. Demand for his Art is growing slowly but surely and at times attracted high bids. 

Everyday is different and brings out different moods , as I look at a blank canvas my thoughts come alive in colour and the blankness of the canvas disappears .With colour splashed an image starts to form which brings excitement and clarity . Layer after layer of paint and colour , the image unfolds and out comes My Creation. Parts of me have left me and became their own entity and I couldn't be happier.

"Medusa"


 

Artist Name: Edo

Medium: Mixed Media on Canvas 

Size: 65x90 cm

Year Created: 2023

Price: €2000

Description: Medusa  (Medusa represents female power and resilience, making it a popular choice for those who identify as feminists or want to celebrate the strength of women) and Zeus (Zeus is considered the ruler, protector, and father of all gods and humans)

Medusa offers a contemporary reinterpretation of the classical figure, blending a rich spectrum of colors to create a strikingly vivid and emotionally resonant piece. The artist has depicted Medusa not just with her iconic serpentine hair but with a humanized and somewhat sympathetic expression that challenges traditional representations of her as a monstrous figure.

 

 "Zeus"

Artist Name: Edo

Size: 65x90 cm

Year Created: 2023

Price: €2000

Description: The artist's choice to portray Zeus with a direct gaze engages the viewer and adds a personal connection to the otherwise ethereal subject. This technique, combined with the strong features rendered in an almost expressionist style, brings a modern twist to the classic iconography typically associated with the god. Overall, the painting captures the essence of Zeus in a unique blend of color, form, and texture, leaving a lasting impression of both the character's mythology and the artist's personal interpretation.

Irina Rozhkova

      

Irina Rozhkova, a watercolor impressionist who discovered her passion for painting at the pivotal age of forty, embraces the unpredictable and fluid essence of watercolors, a medium notorious for its challenging nature. This late blooming artist embarked on a journey of exploration and learning, studying under various teachers, only to realize the beauty and humility in the uncontrollable aspects of the creative process. Irina finds her muse in the unparalleled artistry of nature itself—its vast skies, serene seas, majestic mountains, and awe-inspiring sunrises stir a profound sense of emotion within her, an essence she aspires to capture and convey through her artwork.

Drawing from the colors of the natural world, Irina employs a distinctive technique that involves mixing pigments directly on wet paper, allowing water to play its part in the unfolding story of each piece. This method not only highlights the unpredictable beauty of watercolor but also reflects the artist's belief in the serendipitous interactions between medium and creator. Much of her inspiration is drawn from the stunning landscapes of Cyprus, with its enchanting views offering an endless palette of hues and tones for her work.

Irina Rozhkova’s watercolor landscapes are not just visual representations of the natural world but an invitation to experience the fleeting, ephemeral moments of beauty that nature generously offers. Through her art, she hopes to evoke a symphony of feelings in the viewer, mirroring the profound impact that the natural world has on her. Irina's journey is a testament to the transformative power of art, reminding us that it is never too late to discover one’s passion and that in the dance with the uncontrollable, there lies the true beauty of creation.

Andrei Simanschi

 I'm a contemporary painter with an academic background who's exploring the frontier where free abstract expression meets the laws of light and shape as we perceive them. I blend my own techniques with traditional methods, shaping up my version of abstract surrealism.
To me art 
art is about diving into the sheer beauty of abstract compositions. I'm intrigued by the captivating allure of abstract beauty – it's like a doorway into a state of deep contemplation.

Through my work, I aim to spark the artist present in every viewer. I see art as this amazing bridge that brings us all together in a shared appreciation for beauty.

 

"Solid Light I"

 

Artist Name: Andrei Simanschi

Medium:  Oil on Canvas 

Size: 100x100 cm

Year Created: 2024

Price: €1730

 

Description: This artwork marks the inception of the upcoming “Solid Light” series. Solid light, or hard light, is a concept theorized by physicists, representing light in a solidified state.

For me, beauty is as elusive as light itself, yet equally valuable and deserving of exploration. Here, the challenges faced by a quantum physicist and an artist can sound strikingly similar – can this ever-moving, elusive, and perplexing substance that envelops us be halted, captured, or tamed? I extend an invitation to the viewer to join me in enjoying the process of trying.

ILona Za                                                                      

     

During my life and studies in Belarus and Russia, I felt the pressure of dictatorship and after graduation, I started travelling and living in different countries of the world. Travelling and studying the history and traditions of various cultures have incredibly expanded my boundaries and perspectives towards art. In my artistic practice, I explore the issues of migration, self-identification and self-acceptance, and the harmonious coexistence of man and nature in a fast-paced cosmopolitan world.

Most of my canvases are graphically painted with acrylic in a graphic manner with clean lines and fills. Also, it’s important for me to save the traditions of past generations and use embroidery, mosaics, and handmade work. I like to combine techniques and knowledge from different fields. It helps me to find unexpected creative solutions for my ideas and develop as an artist with every new art piece.

“Bird Singing” 

 

 

Artist Name: ILona Za

Medium: Acrylic, Silver leaf on Canvas 

Size: 50x70 cm 

Year Created: 2022

Price: €1200

Description: 

My work is inspired by the incredible birdsong that I listen to when I paint in the studio. The color combination of the painting from the Papho’s magnificent sea sunsets. 

Harmonious coexistence of human and nature became one of the main subjects in my art. Nature with its endless beauty is my biggest inspiration. 

The history of civilizations shows that the rise or fall of a civilization is closely tied to the quality of the ecological environment. We shall protect ecosystems as preciously as we protect our eyes, and cherish them as dearly as we cherish our lives.

"Endless Strength"

Artist Name: Elham Razani

Medium: Mixed Media on Canvas 

Size: 120x88 cm 

Year Created: 2021

Price: €3300

Description: "Endless Strength" encapsulates the profound resilience of Persian culture amidst adversity, with a striking portrayal of women who refuse to be silenced. Despite facing societal, cultural, and spiritual oppression, women in Iran continue to stand tall, fighting tirelessly for their rights. Their unwavering strength is depicted in the painting's imagery, where even torn clothes symbolize the pressures they endure, yet their confidence remains unshaken.

 

Furthermore, the inclusion of a 3D-rendered nipple challenges societal norms and censorship, questioning the inequality that women face in comparison to men. By boldly depicting this symbol of female anatomy, the artist highlights the inherent strength and defiance of women, who refuse to be confined by arbitrary rules and restrictions.

In Iran, women continue to push boundaries and defy expectations, inspiring generations to come with their unwavering determination and unwavering resolve to fight for their rights and freedoms.

Description: In this captivating painting, I explore the intricate parallels between flowers and women, delving into their shared traits of beauty, sensitivity, and vulnerability. Like delicate blossoms, both are perceived through the lens of individual perception, where beauty is subjective and lies in the eye of the beholder. Yet, beneath their outward fragility lies a remarkable strength and resilience, akin to the unyielding power found within nature itself. Through vibrant strokes and subtle symbolism, I caution against underestimating or exploiting their essence, for within their grace lies a formidable force to be reckoned with.
