‘REVIVAL’ | Solo Exhibition by Rita Dagher Mekanna

The Opening event of the Solo Exhibition by Rita Mekanna at our gallery in Limassol, will be on the 29th of October! 💜
We are all looking for hope after the big transformation we are going through.
After all the losses, people are going through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
Each person created his/her own world, both internally and externally and we became like water, adapting to new shapes, new situations and new emotional states.
Life starts with water and you are that drop of water that can transform and make big changes and create unlimited opportunities.
Throughout her exhibition, Rita aims to show different paintings to express the pain process and the search for hope after these hard times of Covid-19. It will also highlight the first miracle of Jesus Christ transforming water into wine at the marriage of Cana. This specific event is anchored because it reflects the marriage of emotions, the transformation we are going through and the divine power of God to change the impossible into unlimited possibilities through faith. The paintings will illustrate the marriage of water, wine and faith to transform to hope, colors and beauty.
Join us!!!

Bart Kuykens in Cyprus | Charity Solo Exhibition

It was an amazing night!

Bart Kuykens, the photographer behind the Porsche cars photos was in Cyprus for the a unique exhibition at our gallery.
The event was organized by Exhibit 8 Gallery & the Porsche Club of Cyprus.
Main sponsor of the event was Winecase.
Part of the revenue were donated to the Organization Φωλία Αγάπης.

Few words about the artist:

Belgium-born Bart Kuykens successfully navigated both the art world and commercial photography since the outset of his career. Following the global success of his hugely successful automotive art books ‘A Flat6 love affair‘, he has attracted the attention of world-class actors, musicians, and media personalities who became subjects of his grainy, visually-rich and powerful black and white portraits. 

His minimalist analog-only approach makes him a sought after professional in today’s dynamic landscape. His signature style is edgy, dark and sometimes a little dirty but always playful with a classy touch.

There will be a cozy atmosphere with wine and finger food at the gallery. Porsche cars will be parked outside the gallery for audience to view!

‘Words with a Story’ | Solo Exhibition by Stavri Pidia

We are so grateful and pleased that we have presented the ‘Words with a Story’ Solo Exhibition by Stavri Pidia. A remarkable exhibition, where Stavri Pidia expresses her views, emotions and perspectives about social issues and challenges the world around us.

Part of the Exhibition’s profit were donated at ΣΠΑΒO, the non-profit Association for the Prevention and Handling of Violence in the Family, which is Stavri’s initiative act.

Few words about the artist and her art..

Stavri Pidia is a Cypriot abstract/contemporary artist, influenced by every day’s social problems and themes. Born in Limassol in 1993, she expressed her love for Art from a very young age. She studied Graphic Design in De Montfort, UK and then continued with a Masters Degree in Digital Media and Journalism at the Cyprus University of Technology. Currently she’s doing her second Masters on Arts and Culture Management at Rome Business School. She began taking part in multiple group exhibition from 2018, when she decided to start working as a professional artist. Her first solo exhibition ”Enigma” took place in June 2019.
She began taking part in multiple group exhibition from 2018, when she decided to start working as a professional artist.
Her first solo exhibition ”Enigma” took place in June 2019.
Her first solo exhibition ”Enigma” took place in June 2019, where she addressed mental illnesses – an issue that has been very sensitive to her for many years. The goal of her exhibition was to bring awareness for that cause and express her emotions on this subject with her paintings.
Her paintings usually address issues that deal with social injustice and awareness, or her personal reflections. The purpose of her art is to express her point of view on certain stereotypes while making the viewers wonder of the final outcome and what it has to say. The main characteristic of her work is the abstract brush strokes, the use of colors and the contrast between either the elements of the painting or the painting and the meaning behind it itself. At the moment she is working on creating a new style with a combination of minimal lines along with her previous abstract expression.
