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 to present 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. The Art Exhibition will take place on the 15th of September, Wednesday at our gallery in the heart of Limassol. Join us for an Art journey combined with music and wine.

Part of the Exhibition’s profit will be donated at ΣΠΑΒΟ, 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.

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.

Don’t miss it!!

Artist’s statement

Time is continually running and there is a continuous exploration of inside and outside of oneself, which has no alignments. Consistency and hard work. The light comes as a liberation, to reduce the wild anxiety, as well as the sound that calms down the souls. The energy of the colours unfolds like a secret garden that hides one more and different dimension of things and beings.

SNEAK PEEK: ‘Portrait’ Exhibition | Opening event

Curatorial statement:

 

“You look happy

You look upset

You look scary

Oh, you look extraordinary!”

 

There are facial expressions of anger, desperation, chaos and there are others of harmony, happiness, enthusiasm. The ‘Portrait’ exhibition aims to present the various styles, colours, methods and possibilities a portrait could be drawn, painted, sculpted or photographed.

In art, faces, appearances and emotions could be presented as they are, explored and twisted. The creator could create himself/herself, as well as aim to illustrate a loved one, an unknown person or even a creature, or a famous persona! Through people’s faces, the audience could recognize past scars, emotions, social and cultural influences, concerns and many more.

Artists are creating through realistic and abstract methodologies to present how they observe the concept. Artists are exploring colors, forms, images, materials, brush strokes, textures, stitching, crosshatching and many more techniques to present their own perspective and style by creating a face!

Solo exhibition by Kompi

Best known on the island for his colourful tattoos, Kompi has recently, also been slowly making his name as a painter. Stuck in the house during the lockdown back in March like the rest of us, Kompi found the only way to escape from reality, while also mentally visit his favourite places in Cyprus, was through painting. This is how the concept of this exhibition was brought to life.

‘Lemons & Waves’ is Kompi’s second solo exhibition, and this one is fully dedicated to his beloved Cyprus. From the camping site in Kato Pyrgos, to the mountains of Kakopetria, these unique paintings are for all the beach bums, the surfers, the water babies and those who simply appreciate the beauty of nature on the island. Kompi’s artworks are consisted of a variety sizes and themes will be for sale in a beautiful atmosphere in the heart of Limassol’s city centre.

View more photos of the event by clicking here.

His work will be in our gallery until the 12th of June.
