Since living in a world where the 9-5pm routine is literally our daily life, we choose to cope through life with stamina of our consideration. For both the artists, Lakis Christofidis and Elina Chrysostomou, art has always been a way of defence mechanism, a way to go through tough times. A way of escape. This exhibition is the outcome of the many Art Sessions they had since August where the two artists met and used the environment and weather as inspiration, the people that walked around them, the sun casting warmth in their hearts.
The artists met while studying in Bristol, UK. Lakis was studying Fashion Design at the time, and Elina was studying Illustration. They bonded, as two long lost friends that found each other in a foreign land, away from home and family. After a year, Lakis returned to Cyprus, and Elina stayed to finish her studies and her Master’s degree, though their bond was never broken. Their friendship remained solid as a rock.
‘Escape the Ordinary’ is the combination of when people and nature, in combination with the abstraction of the world, meet. All in one simple, yet in an extremely charismatic and creative explosion of inspiring techniques and colour, of Contemporary Art.Venue:
