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!

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.

SNEAK PEEK: ‘Back To Life’ by Ludmila Budanov

A remarkable 3-day Solo Exhibition began on the 26th of May!

‘Back To Life’ is the latest of Ludmila’s Solo Exhibitions and it is hosted by Exhibit 8 in the heart of Limassol’s city centre.

Ever wish that you could experience paintings the way you do music?

As a trained musician, she spent decades conducting orchestras and teaching before moving into abstract painting as she found music restricting.  This is why her paintings are intense and ever changing, they depict music. She is affected by the world around her as  the world, in its current predicament, is too harsh and dark and wanted to create artwork that would make anyone content even in the darkest of days. It doesn’t presume anything, it just is.

Ludmila’s methodology is a mix between unique and spontaneous oil painting and are almost always executed in bold or pastel colours that bleed into one another as if they have been submerged in water. Her artwork oozes light and colour and has become increasingly popular (Cyprus) and is expanding internationally. She also exhibited in Taiwan, Amsterdam, Germany, Russia, Spain, Latvia and China.

‘Blue’ Group Exhibition | Opening event

‘Blue’ exhibition’s opening was on the 20th of May at our Gallery. The Exhibit 8 Gallery was recently relocated at Saripolou square, in the heart of Limassol’s City Centre.
This exhibition is consisted of blue and remarkable artworks!! An open theme exhibition with photography artworks, paintings, drawings and sculptures. All are based on the blue colour!
Blue – a color – a feeling – a space.
Artworks are created with shades, hues and tints of
dark and light blue!
Blue can be calm; it can be stormy or moody.
Blue can be anything.
People’s perspective on a particular colour could vary based on their experiences and senses. Monochrome idea was a significant part for the colour theory in Arts and it is a durable way of expression through Contemporary Art too.
Artists are invited to use the colour in any way they wish to explore the colour’s possibilities, composition, simplicity, as well as abstraction. For more photos click here.
